operating system that i have used
I have been using windows in my PC which is now the updated version of windows 10. I am also using the android operating system on my tablet which is also very convenient. I have been using the windows from 2017 and i have been given the tablet this year which has pre installed android. I have a great experience with both of these operating systems.
My first exposure to the operating system.
At first i used windows 7 in my desktop computer with wire internet connection on weekends under the supervision of my elder brother and it was good until he barge in to control everything, what me and my other siblings try to do. My brother let us watch videos and play games for an hour per weekend but without internet we are allowed to play on that PC everyday for one hour it was one of the best memory i have regarding the usage of operating system.
