so heres my question:
is your operating sysem in you RAM after you boot it?
where is it after you boot it?

Can you please explain it clearly,cause its really bugging me. :( 

is it like a program,w/c is from HDD and stored in RAM so that the CPU can access it quickly?
or its like a one time loading operation,w/c is from HDD directly to the CPU because its only an "environment" and you dont need to process it quickly because you pretty much dont edit its registries?

I know that programs is first loaded to your RAM after it gets it from the HDD,so that your CPU can process it faster.
I also know that program is also called application software,w/c is pretty much a "software" like an operating system.
i also wanna say more things than this but i just wanna stick to my question.i hope that you can help me

if it is in the RAM,then why also is it so small you can barely see its size?

Thank you :hello:

The OS stays on the HDD/SSD. Its the "thinking" that is in RAM, the processes.

==============


Its called LiveCD, that could be loaded in to the RAM and operate from there.

Thanks for the quick answer bro!

I got confused by this article recently,w/c says "To boot (as a verb; also "to boot up") a computer is to load an operating system into the computer's main memory or random access memory (RAM). "

is this article wrong?
