1. What is an operating system?

Every useful PC must have an operating system to run different
programs and applications. Operating systems perform
fundamental tasks, for example, perceiving input from the
keyboard, sending output to the PC monitor, monitoring
documents and indexes on the disk, and controlling devices such
as printers, CD-ROMs and disk drives. For large systems, the
operating system has much more powers and greater
responsibilities. It ensures that different users and applications
running in the meantime do not interfere with each other. The
operating system is additionally in charge of security,
guaranteeing that unapproved users don't access the system.

3. Is server operating system different from client

operating system? If so what is the difference?
Yes both server and client OS are different in so many ways.
A client OS is for the most part a single user OS where just 1
client can be effectively utilizing the PC at any one time. Video
and sound are vital to the "clients" to have a rich experience
while a server operating system is a multi-client operating
system where it is advanced for multiple user access at the same
time sharing the available all resources. Sound administrations
might be constrained and the video experience is not essential in
server OS. Further, a server OS provides mass network services,
while a client OS provides a workspace for users. A server OS
easily manages many client OS as it is higher version of client
OS. Moreover, a server OS is fully covered (ex: Active Directory,
DNS, DHCP, Failover clusters, etc...) and have higher security
than the client OS. In addition, a server OS provides centralised
administration for all users, all shared resources with higher
security but client OS only provides local (only 1 PC) machine
administration with lower security. Another difference is that
server OS runs backend services efficiently than the client OS. On
the other hand, a client OS efficiently runs front end softwares
and applications.

multiuser operating system. The UNIX systems developed by

HP, SUN, IBM organizations. It is not a free source operating
Linux: it is based on UNIX Linux is an operating system it is
open source operating system free to use, it is mainly used for
pcs hardware and software, applications and game
