what is the role of operating system in computer.
The operating system acts as an interface between the hardware and the programs requesting I/O.
Responsibilities of the OS include:
Hiding the complexities of hardware from the user
Managing between the hardware's resources which include the processors, memory, data storage and I/O devices
Handling "interrupts" generated by the I/O controllers
Sharing of I/O between many programs using the CPU
Operating system acts like an interface between hardware and user.
OS is the life of the system and its just keeps everything alive.
