1 Computer Operating Systems Technology Concepts Banks High School

2 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts2 Operating Systems Allow you to customize your machine, and make changes to it’s settings –Before operating systems, everything on the system was hardwired, and could not change anything! –Had to buy a completely new machine to add features An operating system controls the system resources of the computer.

3 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts3 Operating Systems Without an operating system, the computer is useless! –Check to see if you have an installation cd before formatting your hard drive. Now found on smaller devices –Cell phones Store photos Play games Organize dates –Palm Pilots Mini-Computer –GPS Track other people

4 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts4 Operating Systems Common Features of current operating systems –Clipboard Copy, Cut, Paste Print Screen –Drivers Allows software to run correctly –Registry Tracks all changes made to the computer –Control Panel Many settings on the computer can be manipulated

5 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts5 Operating Systems There are many different types of Operating Systems –CLUI – Command Line User Interface –GUI – Graphic User Interface –Multi-User – Many users can use at the same or at a different time –Multi-Processor – System can use multiple processors simultaneously

6 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts6 Examples of Operating Systems MS-DOS – Command Line User Interface MacOS – (GUI) Linux – (GUI & CLUI) Windows – Graphic User Interface (GUI) Picture Picture (Screenshot) Picture Picture (Screenshot) Picture Picture (Screenshot)

7 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts7 MS-DOS Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) –A command line user interface. MS-DOS 1.0 released in 1981 for IBM computers Latest version of MS-DOS –MS-DOS 6.22, released in –MS-DOS is not commonly used by itself today, but still can be accessed from every version of Microsoft Windows.

8 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts8 Command Line Interface C:\> typical command line prompt Commands –{cd.. } {dir} {copy} {del} {c:} –C:\>dirtells you the contents of the c: directory –C:\>cd windowsChanges to the windows directory –C:\windows>win.exe will run that executable file

9 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts9 GUI (Graphic User Interface) Operating Systems Allow you to use images to navigate through computer, and by the click of the mouse, information from the computer can be manipulated. Allows you to customize many settings of computer, especially the way that your computer looks, and runs.

10 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts10 GUI (Graphic User Interface) Pro’s Simplifies Interface Don’t need to know syntax More Capabilities Can run multiple software programs simultaneously Con’s Cost !!! –Developers –Artists –Programmers Bog’s down system resources

11 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts11 The Clipboard An area of space reserved for temporary storage of information. –Copy – cntl C –Cut – cntl X –Paste – cntl V –Print Screen – alt Prnt Scrn Can store images, text, or files until a new item is placed on the clipboard.

12 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts12 Drivers Installing Software Drivers allow software to run correctly. When you install a program onto your computer, drivers are installed. Missing drivers = program will not run Prevents software from being “stolen”

13 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts13 The Registry What is the Registry? “The Registry is a database used to store settings and options… It contains information and settings for all the hardware, software, users, and preferences of the PC. Whenever a user makes changes to a Control Panel settings, or File Associations, System Policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in the Registry.”

14 Jacob Pence, Banks High School – Technology Concepts14 GUI (Graphic User Interface) Conclusion If you can afford it - Use it! –Because of updates and future technologies The best software does not always win –Software companies will follow the money Microsoft has billions in assets and employees Most software companies make products that are compatible with current versions of Microsoft OS’s
