    I'll bring the kid to sim lim to buy hardware then teach him how to assemble and then install the OS. Can only do this with Windows.

    In computing, an operating system (OS) is the system software responsible for the direct control and management of hardware and basic system operations. Additionally, it provides a foundation upon which to run application software such as word processing programs and web browsers.
