The Operating System is an important component of a computer system. Every Computer must have a operating system. Without the operating system, the computer system is useless.

It has the same relation with Computer Hardware as the human soul has with a human body. As the human body is useless without a human soul, similarly, a Computer is useless without an operating system.

Examples of some commonly used Operating Systems are MS Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Unix, DOS ("Disk Operating System") etc.
