CIS144_OS Architecture

I need an explanation for this Computer Science question to help me study.

Introduction to OS Architecture

What is an operating system (OS)?

In order to deploy a SOHO type network to meet the needs of a small business / home-office type environment, you must be able to match key business needs with technological support. As a contractor you will identify the key features of mainstream operating systems, their deployment and configuration, and build a small network from scratch. You will start by getting familiar with basic operating systems.

·Power on the Ubuntu virtual machine and again follow through some simple exercises to familiarize yourself with the Linux operating system desktop.

Last, create a simple report featuring the following guidelines:

·Create a list of features that explain the fundamental differences between Windows and Linux.

·Create a set of guidelines for choosing an operating system for different kinds of users and application specific uses.
