The main advantage of using an operating system is that it enables users to run their own computer without any knowledge of coding. Without an operating system, your hardware would not work at all, until you wrote your own code for the hardware telling it what to do.

An operating system (OS) is software, consisting of programs and data that runs on computers, managing computer hardware resources and providing services for various application software.

For hardware functions such as input and output and memory allocation, the operating system acts as an intermediary between application programs and the computer hardware,  although the application code is usually executed directly by the hardware and will frequently call the OS or be interrupted by it. Operating systems are found on almost any device that contains a computer; from cellular phones and video game consoles to supercomputers and web servers. Examples of popular modern operating systems are: BSD, Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and UNIX

An operating system consists of many parts. One of the most important components is the kernel, which controls low-level processes that the average user usually cannot see; it controls how memory is read and written, the order in which processes are executed, how information is received and sent by devices like the monitor, keyboard and mouse and decides how to interpret information received from networks. The user interface is a component that interacts with the computer user directly, allowing them to control and use programs. The user interface may be graphical with icons and a desktop or textual, with a command line. Application programming interfaces provide services and code libraries that let application developers write modular codes, reusing well defined programming sequences in user space libraries or in the operating system itself.

All kinds of operating systems are fundamentally the same because all use the same building blocks. Therefore, the advantages of operating system are general and can apply to all. The major advantage of an operating system is that it can allow you to use computer without having the coding knowledge. In other words, it makes the computer user friendly. Secondly, without an operating system your hardware will not work at all. Thirdly, the groups of short programs in an operating system run the other programs on your computer like software. Moreover, operating system is important for scheduling, loading, execution, multi-tasking and multi-processing of data.

There are various advantages of operating system because it makes the system user-friendly and a normal consumer is not required to learn coding language to use the system. Secondly, an operating system supports the hardware of the computer and it enables the execution of short programs of the computer. In addition to that, operating system helps in scheduling, execution and multi-tasking. Another same question on Blurtit can further tell you more benefits of operating system.

Operating systems are the integral part of the computer system. Without operating system, a  computer is no more than pieces of hardware which are of no use. Operating system allows the users to give direct commands to the computer for performing various complex tasks. It is loaded in to the system and is mainly responsible for the management of gardware, data processing, codes processing etc. Operating systems allow the users to write application programs easily with lesser consumption of time. It serves as an intermediary between the application programs and hardware of computer. The user interface within the operating system makes it easier for the users to give instructions without allowing them to deal with the machine language of the computer.

Saves you from having to write all that tedious assembly code.  You mistype a single "0" or "1" and it's back to the drawing board!

An Operating System is a group of short programs that are needed to supervise the running of other programs or you can say these are the procedures that control the resources of the computer. These resources include software, hardware, data and operators. The function associated with operating system includes scheduling, loading, initiating and supervising the execution of programs, multitasking, multiprocessing etc.

Operating systems are great to use, and can help you get your job done easily and fast!
I do not recommend not running your computer without an OS. It can be frustrating and may make your job harder, if you do not know what you are doing.
I recommend XP, Or Leopard.

Hopefully this was helpful!
