History Timeline
Definition: Computer software is the all the information in programs and data being processed by the computer.
An operating system (OS) is a collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs.
Operating System
One of the first purposes of a computer was to provide an easier way for people to create documents where they could edit them without having to use weight out. The invention of office software allowed people to type something up edit it and store it in memory until they wanted to print it.
Office productivity
What is computer software?
There are three types of computer software's:
-System Software
-Programming Software
-Application Software
1950s- A resident monitor that could automatically run different programs in succession to speed up processing.
1960s- IBM's OS/360 introduced the concept of a single OS spanning an entire product line, which was crucial for the success of the system/360 machines.
In 1983 Microsoft realized Word 1.0. it was a huge success and was the first program of its kind to use a mouse . In 1985 they also realized Word for mac. In an attempt to try to win over the mac population with their software.
System software is the software that controls the computer hardware with basic functions. Examples of system software are device drivers,operating systems and servers.
1970s- Several hardware capabilities evolved that allowed similar or ported software to run on more than one system.
1980s- The introduction of the Intel 80386 with 32 bit architecture and paging capabilities, provided personal computers with the ability to run multitasking operating systems like those of earlier minicomputers and mainframes.
1990s- Intel 386 processor was introduced, programs run noticeably faster. 32-bit OS releases for the public.
In 1985 Microsoft released excel to the mac platform. In 1987 they released the first windows version.
In 1997 Microsoft released Outlook it was to replace the applications for mail, schedule and other time management related things.
Programming software is the software where everything involves about programs. This type of software is all you need for creating, maintaining or protecting computer programs. Examples of programming software are compilers, debuggers and linkers.
In 1990 Microsoft realized
PowerPoint it was designed
to be a graphical
presentation software
and was a raging success
selling almost 1 billion

Application software is the type of software acting as a messenger to tell what the processor must do for the user.
One way to think about what it can do; it is the internet browser displaying images to the monitor.
2000s- 64-bit was introduced allowing the computer to store large amounts of memory such as projects, movie effects, 3D animations.
Microsoft has truly revolutionized the predestination world for the better.
Today- Today's modern operating systems do amazing variety of functions easily. Today's OS allows us to run a variety of programs or applications in less than a minute. It allows the user to display high quality video, music, games, print large complex documents, and of course surf the internet in a blink of an eye.
Who, What, When, Where, Why
Who: The inventor of the first computer controlled by a program software is Konrad Zuse.
If you can read this, yell derp
(Easter Egg)
What: He built and invented the Zuse Z1, the first program controlled computer.
When: His first invention was built and patented in 1938 and later built the Z3 three years later.
Where: The Z1 was built in the Berlin, capitol of Germany.
Why: The Z1 Zuse computer was built for further computer studies on how it can think for itself and it won't need any user, or human, to solve problems; by itself.
