In the history of the world, there have been a number of big and well known (not necessarily the same) operating systems. Operating systems are the things that make the hardware in your computer work. While most users are familiar with Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS, many aren't comfortable or versed with GNU/Linux land.
