INTRODUCTION

At the core of your computer is the hardware; the physical pieces that use electricity and do work.  Each hardware component can communicate over something called a bus, an electronic pathway used to send data and electricity.

Next, the operating system controls how the hardware is used allowing multiple things to happen at once. The operating system is often also a GUI (pronounced ‘gooey’), or Graphical User Interface.  This means there are pictures, icons, and text on the screen that allow a user to control hardware functions such as the copying of files from one place to another.

Running ‘on top of’ the operating system are applications.  They are allocated hardware resources by the operating system so they can do their job. 

Finally, the user is at the top and controls how both the applications and operating system (to a degree) function.
