Types of Software Systems

Computers are the brain of new world that belong humanity. People save up time and

obtain some functions with computers. In time, the future seen on computers and people

pursue them. At first, they just consist of a lot of pieces electronic circuits to operate some

function such as addition and subtraction. Electronic circuits in other words hardware systems

are taken on meaning with software systems to solve more complicated function. Computer

software systems are divided into three major categories: system software, programming

software and application software.

The initial section about software systems refers to system software. System

software is substratum point on computer system which provide major actions. Other software

systems base system software to command their functions. System software includes device

drivers, operating systems and servers. Operating systems with other words collection of

software resource common services for computer programs. They are the vital system on

computer and provide database to application softwares. Device drivers which manage a

particular kind of device, are computer program. Considering microphones that attached to

computers, they need software to recognise themselves to operating systems. Servers is the

system software that relate computers to each others. Internet is formed with server systems.

Thus, information is accessible from person to person.

The second part of software systems is about programming software.

Programming software include tools that is used by software developers, such as create,

debug, maintain, or otherwise support other programs and applications. Computer need

compiler which is set of programs for transforming source code into another computer

programming language. This transformation create an executable program. In addition,

computer debug and test from controller system to avoid...
