How to use "Operating systems" in context?
Operating systems are the essential software that govern a computer.
The origins of operating systems date back to the 1950s, when computers were first developed. At the time, many different developers were working on these early machines, and they needed a way to initialize and organize the various files on the computers. As a result, they developed a simple system that would allow different users to access the same files, and they called the system "Operating System/360."
Later in the 1950s, IBM came up with the first true operating system, called OS/360.
