Object-oriented operating system
An Object-oriented operating system
is an operating system
that uses the concept of WIMP
(Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointer or Windows, Icons, Mouse and Pull-down Menus depending on your text). Such systems use an XY pointing device like a mouse
to direct a cursor (pointer) on the screen
. Most, if not all, desired actions are achieviable by manipulation of objects on screen through the WIMP concept.
Windows and Mac OS are two commonly used examples of object-oriented operating systems.
