  • UNIX - UNIX is an operating system that was developed in the 1970s. It was a very influential system that became the basis for many other operating systems. UNIX is known for its robustness, flexibility, and ability to share resources among multiple users.
  • MS-DOS - MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System) was the first operating system developed by Microsoft for personal computers. It was a simple text-based operating system that was popular in the 1980s and 1990s.
