    - A computer software designed to operate and control the computer hardware and to provide a platform for running application software is known as System software (systems software).

    - They can be separated into two different categories, operating systems and utility software.

    - The parts of a computer that are allowed to work together by performing tasks like transferring data between memory and disks or rendering output onto a display device are known as operating system . It also provides a platform to run high-level system software and application software.

    - The core part of the operating system that defines an API for applications programs (including some system software) and an interface to device drivers is known as a kernel . On some systems the kernel may be called "nucleus" or "hardcore".

    - The device drivers, including also computer BIOS and device firmware, provide basic functionality to operate and control the hardware connected to or built into the computer.

    - A user interface is the one that "allows users to interact with a computer."The command-line interface is still a commonly used alternative.

    - Utility software is the one that helps to analyze, configure, optimize and maintain the computer, such as virus protection.
