Solaris Operating Environment

Operating environment

In computing, an operating environment is the environment in which users run programs, whether in a command line interface, such as in MS-DOS or the Unix shell, or in a graphical user interface, such as in the Macintosh operating system, or a web browser for web-based applications. An operating environment does not mean that the system is a full operating system. For an example, the first version of Microsoft Windows was not a full operating system, but a GUI laid over DOS albeit with an API of its own.
