What are the different operating systems?

There are five different types of operating systems. They are the following:

  1. Batched operating systems – users of a batch operating system do not interact with the computer directly
  2. Multi-programmed operating systems – allows more than one program to run at the same time.
  3. Timesharing operating systems – Time-sharing allows many people, located at various terminals, to use a particular computer system at the same time.
  4. Distributed operating systems – a software distributed over a collection of independent, networked, communicating, and physically separate computational nodes
  5. Real-time operating systems – the time interval required to process and respond to inputs is so small that it controls the environment.
