It is the software the enables all the programs we use.
OS acts as an interface between the application programs
and the machine hardware.
Microsoft Windows operating system was developed by
Microsoft to overcome the limitation of its own MS-DOS

(5). Command interpretation:- Command interpretation
module takes care of interpreting user commands, and
directing system resources to process the commands.
The two primary objectives of an operating system are:
(1). Make a computer system easier to use:- An
operating system hides details of hardware resources
from programmers and other users and provides them
with a convenient interface for using a computer system.
(2). Manage the resources of a computer system:- An
operating system manages all the resources of a
computer system. Efficient and fair sharing of system
resources among users and/or programs is a key goal of
all operating systems.
