Windows 7/Software Support (Introducing Windows Operating System)


The questions ask List four major functions of an OS.

My answer:
Function 1: Provide a user interface
Function 2: Manage files
Function 3: Manage hardware
Function 4: Manage applications

Is my answer correct?

Yes.  This answer is correct.  I apologize for the late reply.  I guess I didn't receive your notification for your question.

This answer also has respects where it is incorrect.  For instance, not every OS has a user interface (DOS, Linux CMD Based, etc.).  I would say an OS is for the following:

-Manage memory
-Manage Processes (including threads)
-Managing files
-Managing devices.

Windows 7
