WEEKLY REFLECTIVE JOURNALS
Introduction
    The knowledge about the management and information technology has been expanding rapidly with the help of advanced research conducted each day. In fact, all these researches are directed towards enhancing the ability of the software and hardware used by consumers. However, the conventional knowledge and experience of the theory that is given so far also plays pivotal role in processing the learning about the world of information technology. The following is a reflective journal about the course learning throughout eleven weeks. There are various aspects which are detailed in the course weeks and they are summarized and presented in the form of journal.
Background
    The course assisted in learning the concepts related to software and hardware. It was meant to provide students with enhanced knowledge of the subject based over the topics that are perceived as the basic contents of the information technology. Throughout the eleven weeks, students were given knowledge about the various operating systems, kinds of hardware used in the systems, the strengths and weaknesses of each operating system, its components and how they function as well as how the memories and other kind of stuff is applied to operate through a combination of software and hardware.
Weekly Reflective Journal
Week One
    This week, we could learn about the basic components of the computer like definitions of data and memory. There are some points that I could remember properly. One of the them is the memory is the main functioning part of a computer and its own functioning is quite interesting to know about. Memory is the place where entire data of the system is stored and processed on command. Control unit and processing unit are the other two components that take up the data from memory and ca
y it forward. While control unit is said to be the in-charge of operations in memory, processing unit analyzes the data precisely and presents it. It also matters for memory to show the access time and delay time because there are different modes of feeds that memory uses for words. Every word is more like some content used. Also, the week introduced the learning of bits and cells which are thee strings of punctuation for word. They are mainly used to make the data file’s capacity visible in a short form. Bites, Kilobytes and Megabytes are shortly state as KBs and MBs, the display measures of the memory access in any system.
Additionally, data types are represented by numbers and linear symbols which is refe
ed as binary mode. The representation of a number x in base b is defined as the vector {an,…a0, a-1,…a-p}     such that x = ∑ni=-p ai bi where ai are integers between 0 and (b-1).
Week Two
    In this week, the learning was focused on various functions and types of operating systems. The major functioning of the hardware is to take inputs, process the data and project the output to the user. However, the role of software in this process is associated with the controlling of hardware. Some categories through which, operating systems work are related to the terms like user interface, a process through which, users are able to communicate with the system. There is file access system from where, it becomes possible to the user to access files stored in the system. However, the most important component of operating systems is said to be kernel. Operating systems are of two types basically; desktop operating systems (Clint OS) which are installed in the personal computers and server operating systems that are applied in business computers. A basic understanding about the various types of servers was also explained through the chapter in this week
    Additionally, later in the week, a
ief history of the computer was introduced and I discovered the fact that computers are just one century old inventions. The basic computers were not compact and technically advanced but they were quite capable of ca
ying out the data process tasks, as per the era in which they were discovered. Thus, the evolution of computer, in a nutshell, is more like an outcome that is done through innovative techniques applies to strengthen mainly the memory and speed with which, data can be processed in system.
Week Three
    In this week, the learning outcomes included knowledge about the Microsoft operating systems like UNIX, Mac OS and Mac OSX kind of systems. Initially, the computers were based on DOS commands, as invented by Microsoft. The first GUI interface was Windows 3.x which changed the way interface was used by people. The floppy driven hardware was replaced by CDs and it also gave a new way to store data in a more compact and safe form. The next version of Windows operating system was Windows 95 which was the first 32 bit OS given to the world by Microsoft. It had the feature of plug and play for the first time in computer word. Its next version, Windows 98, came with some more features like automatic checks of registry and repairing mode. It can be seen in this invention that for the first time, Windows 98was able to make sure that upgrades can be downloaded from internet directly. Therefore, a new system was here to introduce people towards a combination of technology with internet, the future of the information technology.
Moreover, the next versions of Windows included Millennium edition, Windows NT, 2000 and 2000 server which were released at the same time. A cohesive overview of the all these versions shows that Microsoft actually worked on the feedbacks received throughout the span of the previous version and worked on evolving the experiences of the users through enhancing the interface capacity of its OS. The most advanced versions of Windows can be seen as Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and...
