[SOLVED] [SOLV'D] Why niftyhost... why???
Under the technology category, on the software forum...

the description is "Talk about software here - Windows, Linux, Notepad++, stuff like that."

knowing that, Windows nor Linux is a software, and that they are an operating SYSTEM... why did you guys do that Huh :)

ALSO:
why did you move my post from
Philosophy
which is about opinions.. and my post was about which opinion you have on email providers to software?
considering that GMAIL is NOT a software. nor YAHOO. or HOTMAIL.

can you guys make a section like "webmaster section" ? and move the "coding" from technology to webmaster section?
and in the webmaster section add domains, tutorials, development, graphic & designs??

Because it's the best fitting description.
And it's not hardware, so it's software.

If it is not a hardware, and not a software.. then it must be a system.

A software doesn't get close to wat a system is... a software RUNS INSIDE a system.
its not THE system.

Operating system = software. Lrn2computer. I moved your thread because not every opinion poll belongs in Philosophy.

And gmail is a software. Just because it runs in a web browser doesnt make it not a software.j

Both Gmail, Windows and Linux is indeed software. The terms "x-ware" are abstract, and in this case, "software" covers 3 types of software categories, System Software (Windows, Linux), Programming Software (Editors, Compilers) and Application Software (Video games, Office etc.).
Then there's another group called Web software (Gmail), which often is seen as a subgroup of application software.

Initially, the term software was coined in contrast to hardware, where hardware was something that could be touched (I.e. CPU, RAM etc.), whereas software is what runs inside the hardware, and cannot be touched. You can touch RAM, but you can't touch an OS.

Honestly, I think most of niftyhost's users would be able to comprehend OS's as being software. Besides, we can't have a million categories anyway, so people just have to pick the places that logically seems to be best fit for their threads.
