Plz help on: difference Between ,distributed OS and network OS: By Prankee.


Network OS is used to manage networked computers, means there would be a server and one or more computers will be managed by that server like in your college, you might have got one dedicated server and it will manage your individual computers or laptop.

Distributed OS is one where all of computers that are connected can share in tasks.For ex. if you and your friend are connected each other using distributed OS then you can use a program which is actually on someone else's computer.This is the reason distributed OS needs more RAM & High speed processor.

In case of Networked OS,connected computers share some resources but not that much like Distributed OS, rather the server provides the necessory services for the connected computers in Networked OS.
