Windows - This is the most popular operating system for personal computers. It is developed and distributed by Microsoft. There are several versions of the Windows operating system, including Windows XP (for home users) and Windows 2000 (for professional users). Earlier versions of Windows include Windows 3.1, 95, 98, ME, and NT. All Windows platforms use a graphical user interface (GUI), like the Mac OS, and also offer a command-line interface for typing text commands.
Workflow - Workflow refers to a business process in which steps must be performed in a particular order, and predefined conditions must be met, before moving from one step to the next. For example, a workflow for purchasing goods might involve first validating the purchaser's credit card details, then ordering the goods from a supplier, and finally arranging delivery. The goods cannot be ordered until the credit card details are authorized, and delivery cannot be arranged until the goods have been received from the supplier.
