An operating system (commonly abbreviated to either OS or O/S) is an interface between hardware and user; an OS is responsible for the management and coordination of activities and the sharing of the resources of the computer. The operating system acts as a host forcomputing applications that are ran on the machine. As a host, one of the purposes of an operating system is to handle the details of the operation of the hardware. This relieves application programs from having to manage these details and makes it easier to write applications. Almost all computers (including handheld computers,desktop computers, supercomputers, video game consoles) as well as some robots, domestic appliances (dishwashers, washing machines), and portable media players use an operating system of some type. [1]Some of the oldest models may however use an embedded operating system, that may be contained on a compact disk or other data storage device.

What is the main benefit for upgrading?


with operating systems , it is only necessary to upgrade if you receive a notice that the current os( operating system) is no longer being supported ( no upgrades to eliminate problems )
an example here is the win 10 upgrade from a previous win 7 , vista etc
this up grade has conflicts with the installed os so it is better to get the win 10 program and install it in full rather than upgrade to win 10
Using mac os and you are happy and confident in the use of that version and there is no notice that that version will no longer be supported, then stay with what you know and is trouble free
however if you want more from the mac os consider buying the program and installing it complete rather than an up grade on the current base os
for advice on this sort of problem , go google and find forums on the subject and then make your decision or talk with a computer repair guy to get good information

How do i purchase a vista operating system


You can just go to www.microsoft.com or search any computer electronic store close to you, and purchase a vista operating system there. But I will recommend you rather bought a Windows 7 OS. Windows 7 is much better than Vista.

WOULD LIKE TO INSTALL 2ND OS(98) ON SYSTEM THAT HAS VISTA AS OS


You cannot install Windows 98 on a system which has a better version of operating system.
You have to install Win98 first, to 1 partition which is formatted under FAT32 and on the 2-nd partition you can install Vista.

best practice it when installing windows and linux install windows first and then linux. GRUB or LILO boot loader is much better then windows boot loader and very easy to reinstall. Mandriva cd should have a rescure feature that will allow you to reinstall the boot loader.

Windows XP OEM OS


Yes, you have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP... Or alternatively you can try a freeware operating system such as UBUNTU. It does basically the same stuff your Windows did, just with a little more flair! http://www.ubuntu.com/
