Programmers often overlook when it comes to putting efforts in understanding Operating System concepts in detail and they can't be blamed for it, considering their situation, there are always pressing needs to learn new frameworks and technologies on the go. But it doesn't make this fact any less important that Understanding of Operating System is equally needed. As a program, may it be written in C, Java, Python or any other programming language, after writing the syntactical pieces of code, it needs to be executed on an Operating System.
