title=Operating Systems: Resource management
Being the most fundamental of all system programs, Operating Systems are trusted with the job of controlling and sorting through the hardware, and this includes all the main components of the computer. To ensure that there is little confusion, the OS programs managing the key resources are giving relatively simple names depending on the resource they manage:
|Key Resource||OS Program|
|I/O devices||I/O management|
Remember: Data is stored information, but Storage holds the information.
