PowerPoint Presentation :

PowerPoint Presentation : DOS dominated the operating system market during the 1980s. DOS is a single-user OS that supports only 640 KB of memory. DOS features a command-line interface, and does not support multitasking or multiprocessing. Because DOS provides no interface restrictions, DOS applications can look and function differently. DOS

PowerPoint Presentation : The Macintosh OS supports the graphical nature of the Macintosh computer. The Mac OS brought the first truly graphical user interface to consumers. The Mac OS also brought interface conformity to the desktop. All applications running under the Mac OS, therefore, provided the same "look and feel" to the user. The Macintosh Operating System

PowerPoint Presentation : Windows 3.0, 3.1, and 3.11 are called the Windows 3.x family. Windows 3.x brought a GUI and multitasking capabilities to PCs running DOS. Windows 3.x is an operating environment because it ran on top of DOS, which was the actual OS. Windows 3. x

PowerPoint Presentation : Microsoft's Windows NT was meant as a replacement for DOS, but was too resource- intensive to work on most PCs at the time of its release. Microsoft issued two versions of Windows NT—Windows NT Workstation and Windows NT Server. NT is a very powerful and robust OS, resistant to system crashes. Windows NT

PowerPoint Presentation : Windows 95 was Microsoft's first true GUI-based, 32-bit operating system for Intel PCs. Windows 95 supports multitasking and can run older DOS and Windows 3.x programs. Windows 98's features include advanced Internet capabilities, an improved user interface, and enhanced file system performance, among others. Windows 95 and 98

PowerPoint Presentation :

PowerPoint Presentation : Linux is a recently developed version of UNIX, which is available for free or at a very low cost from various sources. Linux is a very powerful 32-bit OS that supports multitasking, multiple users, networking, and virtually any application. Linux can run on nearly any type of computer. Because of its power and openness, Linux is attracting many users, including students, teachers, Internet service providers, and others. Linux

PowerPoint Presentation : Windows 2000 features the same interface and features of Windows 98, with the file system, networking, power, and stability of Windows NT. Several versions of Windows 2000 are available, each targeting a specific user or computing environment, from home PCs to large enterprise networks. Windows 2000
