KEY FEATURES AND SERVICES OF OPERATING SYSTEMS2
Range of different operating systems
Different operating systems are meant to run on different types of systems that are
meant to run different applications (Bach 2018). As an example, the Windows and Linux
operating systems are meant to be run on desktop PCs and servers whereas the iOS or iPhone
Operating Systems and Android are meant to be run on smartphones.
Again among the Windows operating systems there can exist different versions such
as Windows 10 Home for everyday users, Windows 10 Pro for the users using the OS to
conduct corporate tasks and then there is Windows Server 2019 meant to be used in rack
mounted servers for data centers and supermarkets.
When it comes to Linux, there are several versions for the use of everyday users like
Ubuntu and Fedora while the Kali Linux of the Debian branch can be used for penetration
testing and conducting hacking attacks on vulnerable systems.
Key Features associated with architecture of an operating system
The key features that are found to be associated with operating systems in general are:
Allocation of resources
Allows access to disks and other features like device drivers, file systems and
Network Security
Availability of different modes like supervisory and protected modes
Detection and Handling of Errors
Execution of program applications
Handling of I/O specific operations
File System manipulation
Memory management and multitasking through virtual memory
