  1. The operating system

    Rationale:
    The operating system is the most important program that runs on a computer, as it tells the computer how to use its own components.

    The most essential type of software is the operating system. The operating systme is a collection of programs that manage all of the computer’s activities, including the control of hardware, execution of software, and management of information. … The operating system also provides a user interface. … Operating systems exist for all categories of computers. (Hebda & Czar, 2013)
