it is good
and also content is good.
A very helpful page for each and every newbie that loves computer...
Sure, the American South gave us some great people: Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, Martin Luther King Jr., William Faulkner, Babe Ruth, Woody Guthrie. But let us not forget the other greats it gave us: boiled peanuts, cheese grits, sweet tea, fried chicken. Click ahead for the South's other culinary greats. But first, let's dig into where all these delicious treats came from.
@Aelthric - "Jargonese" is used because its the proper terminology. Calling something a "doodad" is fine until you actually have to work with it...In any case, there's nothing wrong with analogies and simple explanations, although I thought this page didn't do much in terms of actually describing what an OS is; the next page, "Operating System Functions" does a far better job of actually describing it.
not nearly enough content per page.
This site is an amazing tool, i recommend using it for all your how stuff works questions!
How Operating Systems Work
From the page: "A model displays Japanese mobile phone operator Willcom's smart phone, 'D4', which comes equipped with the Windows Vista operating system."
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO What kind of sick person would do something like that!?
as if I would read this
A good, simple explanation of how a computer Operating System works.
Wow a site that does not pander to the "Emperors new clothes" Jargonese ethic in technology today. Simplifying concepts is essential to inclusion of everybody into technology and this site does it with style. Its no good rambling on in Jargonese when trying to teach how something works if the basic principles are not understood. All Jargonese is designed to do is enforce an elitism among technologists.
I'm-a gonna research clumping cat litter.
Is there ANYthing this site can't answer??
I never get bored with this sight!
This would be a great place to send high school students who need to learn about operating systems.
