I am taking an Introduction to UNIX class and this week we are to compare and contrast the Windows and Linux OS schemas. My question is: what is the schema of an OS? Is it as simple as the directory structure of the installed OS?
Our text book has been pretty useless as it is a guide to Linux Script Programming. I have tried Googling it as well and found 1000's of hits but most have to do with databases.
For this assignment, I am comparing Win XP Pro (my current OS) and Knoppix 3.6 for Linux (we are using Linux Terminal to emulate UNIX commands for classroom assignments).
I'm not looking for someone to do my work, just point me in the right direction! Please! Thanks.
