Multitasking - It means running multiple programs at 1 time.
For Example running a game and windows media player simultaneously.

Multithreadind : this means that how many data threads can the processor process at a given time.
Faster multithreading means that u ll breeze through your applications.

Contact me if this is not clear.

What is the 5 types of operating system?


This are the Operating system types:



As computers have progressed and developed so have the operating systems. Below is a basic list of the different operating systems and a few examples of operating systems that fall into each of the categories. Many computer operating systems will fall into more than one of the below categories.
GUI - Short for Graphical User Interface, a GUI Operating System contains graphics and icons and is commonly navigated by using a computer mouse. See the GUI definition for a complete definition. Below are some examples of GUI Operating Systems.

System 7.x
Windows 98
Windows CE

Multi-user - A multi-user operating system allows for multiple users to use the same computer at the same time and different times.See the multi-user definition for a complete definition for a complete definition. Below are some examples of multi-user operating systems.

Linux
Unix

Windows 2000

Multiprocessing - An operating system capable of supporting and utilizing more than one computer processor. Below are some examples of multiprocessing operating systems.

Linux
Unix

Windows 2000

Multitasking - An operating system that is capable of allowing multiple software processes to run at the same time. Below are some examples of multitasking operating systems.

Unix
Windows 2000

Multithreading - Operating systems that allow different parts of a software program to run concurrently. Operating systems that would fall into this category are:

Linux
Unix

Windows 2000

Hope this information could help you to solve your problem. Mam/Sir don't forget me to rate me up I really appreciate what grade/ratings you will be given to me, it could help me lot to answer more questions especially in explaining in more detailed. Thanks a lot and God Bless.

Meaning


The most important program that runs on a computer. Every general-purpose computer must have an operating system to run other programs. Operating systems perform basic tasks, such as recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keeping track of files and directories on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. For large systems, the operating system has even greater responsibilities and powers. It is like a traffic cop -- it makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time do not interfere with each other. The operating system is also responsible for security, ensuring that unauthorized users do not access the system.
Operating systems can be classified as follows:
  • multi-user : Allows two or more users to run programs at the same time. Some operating systems permit hundreds or even thousands of concurrent users.
  • multiprocessing : Supports running a program on more than one CPU.
  • multitasking : Allows more than one program to run concurrently.
  • multithreading : Allows different parts of a single program to run concurrently.
  • real time: Responds to input instantly. General-purpose operating systems, such as DOS and UNIX, are not real-time.
  • Operating systems provide a software platform on top of which other programs, called application programs, can run. The application programs must be written to run on top of a particular operating system. Your choice of operating system, therefore, determines to a great extent the applications you can run. For PCs, the most popular operating systems are DOS, OS/2, and Windows, but others are available, such as Linux.
    As a user, you normally interact with the operating system through a set of commands. For example, the DOS operating system contains commands such as COPY and RENAME for copying files and changing the names of files, respectively. The commands are accepted and executed by a part of the operating system called the command processor or command line interpreter. Graphical user interfaces allow you to enter commands by pointing and clicking at objects that appear on the screen.

    What is the basic difference between multitasking multiprogrammin


    I would have expected that you would be asking the difference between
    multithreading and parallel processing, which is simply a matter of using
    sequential processor [multithreading] to simulate simultaneous data streams from multiple processors [parallel processing] while the terms you did inquire concerning are various terms of varying complexity which refer to the simultaneous accomplishment of various tasks.

    A multithreading processor alternates the application of tasks to alternating clock cycles of the same processor.

    A parallel processor has a matrix of multiple processors assigned to diverse tasks with streaming data from each clock cycle of the same processor for the same task.

    multitasking simply means the simultaneous accomplishment of multiple tasks by any means including cyber or human.

    Multiprogramming is the simultaneous operation of various alogorithms
    where none are halted to allow the others to proceed, which process can be accomplished through with either parallel processors or a multithreaded processor.

    Prior to the existence of multiple processors in a single CPU (ex. Core Duo) or even Multithreaded Processors [Pentium Four, PPC], certain types of looping algorithmic methods could be applied [and this programmer did apply such] to multiple tasks to create
    the appearance that the tasks were accomplished simultaneously.
    The latter was more of a Trompe l'Oeil

    Want to buy a new computer for personel use , which cpu is better dual core or core2duo girish email. girishpratap@yahoo.co.in


    If you going to be using intensive programs like 3d editing, gaming, video editing, photoshop/image editing, or just multitasking and keeping alot of programs open you should get a faster cpu speed, and probably the core 2 duo. Core 2 duo (intel) is dual core and 64bit which gives more processing power, for some applications. Dual core is just normal processor (32bit) and just has 2 cores.

    CPU is basically for the computers thinking/multitasking/processing info. If you want to multitask alot of programs your going to need processing power AND alot of RAM, the more the better/faster. If your going to be gaming or doing intesive stuff with graphics, you need a powerful video card. And hard disk is solely dependent on your storage needs too.

    If your just going to be surfing the web, emailing, facebook, watching dvd's, and whatnot, any computer (new) should do you fine. But if you want HD video you need a powerful video card and processor.

    Also When I mean powerful I dont mean the most powerful, just the mid-range of 'power'. So if you want to get anything more than basic, go for a mid-priced PC. Also this will let your computer last longer as updates and new software tend to slow down your computer, and you need more power to keep up with new stuff, but don't worry, it wont happen that fast!
