What is Application?
This is a generic term for any software program that runs on the computer. Applications run within operating systems and as such cannot be used between different operating systems. That is, an application that runs in the Mac OS will not under normal circumstances run on a Windows or Linux system. There are exceptions to this rule but those are essentially feats of software engineering genius. Systems software is a special class of applications and as such should be considered to be different from applications themselves.
