Session 7, Jones, Answer Guide A) Explain the relationship between operating systems such as Linux and functional (application) software such as payroll. - the operating system software manages and controls the activities of the computer (such as input, output, processing, data movement) – it would handle the input and output requests of the application software [e.g. for data, for printing] - application software is written for specific functions, such as payroll, and needs to be in a version that the operating system can understand [language used, for example, protocols used to access data] - the application software can only run if there is an operating system present (i.e. it cannot run without the operating system) - if an operating system is changed, it may mean that applications software will no longer function (the application software would need to be changed/upgraded) - users interact frequently with application software, entering information, requesting reports, etc. that are passed on to the operating system for execution
