Task 1: Create a folder in your host machine and name it ‘Test_your_student_ID’. Replace the ‘your_student_ID’ potion with your unique CDU student ID. Now detail out the steps required to make this folder available to the guest OS within VirtualBox windows. The guest OS users should have full permission to ‘Test__your_student_ID’ folder. The folder should be shareable between the guest and host OS with users of VirtualBox OS having full permission to create, modify and delete any file available inside that folder.
Show the steps with appropriate screenshots and summary.
The format for Task 1 should be as following:
Step 1 : what steps you have taken screenshot
Step 2 : the next steps you have taken screenshot
Summary: A short summary of all the steps and what objective did you achieve.
Task 2: Describe in your own words (around ~400 words) in what ways an Operating System impacts the proper functioning of a computer.
Task 3: You have been given the responsibility to set up an office environment composed of 15 computers and install appropriate operating systems in those. However, you have also been advised to keep the sourcing cost of these OS to as minimum as possible; at the same time, ensuring user experience is reasonably good and the users, who are mostly non-technical, should be able to navigate the systems rather easily. It’s an accounting farm and they will only use the computers for regular accounting related activities, emailing, and a bit of spreadsheet and documentation.
Write down in your word out of Windows, Linux and MacOS, which one will you recommend for the setup of the computers and why; it could also be a mixed system. State your reasons clearly for your choice.
