The operating system takes care such that other applications are able to use memory, input and output devices and have access to the file system.
An operating system is conceptually broken into three sets of components: a shell, a kernel and low-level system utilities.
In some operating systems the shell and the kernel are completely separate entities, allowing you to run varying combinations of shell and kernel (eg Unix), in others their separation is only conceptual (eg Windows).

I was once told that it was because they wanted to be exactly different from the existing systems of the day when they were developing the first versions of DOS; they called it "innovation" and said it was for "ease of use".
There are SCSI problems on all systems though so if you're having problems configuring it (rather than the fact that there is no driver for it) just keep beating away at it and it will conceede defeat some time.

 CS 736 - Advanced Operating Systems - Project List
A file system can be viewed as a large, complex data structure (i.e., consisting of a superblock, i-nodes, indirect blocks, and data blocks).
This will involve understanding the file system data structures of a particular OS (e.g., Linux or Windows), traversing those structures by reading from the raw disk device, determining what information is interesting, and innovating in how to display this complex information simply.
You might make such a system smarter by attempting to obtain vertical information, such as on which floor you are (might be obtained by inferring from which base station you are receiving, e.g.,).

 Review of Operating Systems
As embedded systems (PDAs, cellphones, point-of-sale devices, VCRs, industrial robot control, or even your toaster) become more complex hardware-wise with every generation, and more features are put into them by the day, applications they run require more and more to run on actual operating system code in order to keep the development time reasonable.

 Popular operating systems list, by The Linux Information Project (LINFO)
The core component, the Hurd (Hird of Unix-replacing daemons) kernel (i.e., the core of the operating system), is still not completed because of its very ambitious goal: to surpass Unix-like kernels in functionality, security and stability while remaining largely compatible with them.
It is unusual among Unix-like operating systems in that it is built on the Mach kernel, which is also used in Mac OS X. Tru64 was originally developed by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) and called Digital UNIX.

And while we're on this point, I want to say that I think that most humans are simply using the OS that came with their 'computer' meaning that we've simply adopted the one that our parents or culture has used for a long time and included along with our upbringing.
(FYI, parents teach their kids application programs AND a default operating system, just as most Intel-based computers come preinstalled with Windows 95 as the operating system.)

 Operating systems for the Web - Network World
The central idea of a Web operating system is to provide a desktop (or Webtop) in a Web browser that is similar in function to a PC desktop.
To be an operating system, it needs to have applications (or Weblications, as they have been called) along with management tools.
Exactly what constitutes a Web operating system is debatable, but in general at the client end a Web browser is responsible for rendering the user interface and handling user interaction as well as performing some or all of the processing.
