An operating system is a program or group of programs that work together as an interface between the hardware of a computer system and its user. Operating systems enable users to do various tasks with their computers, from simple mathematical calculations to connecting computers around the world via the Internet.

There are very many operating systems in existence, though most computers today use operating systems either derived from Microsoft Windows/DOS or UNIX.
