Why Software is Soft?

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

why software is soft ,it’s very basis question, worth to know it..

Our computer is designed in layered in architecture, In the core (inner layer) we have all physical component(h/w).

In starting , we were directly interacting with hardware and mainly in 1 & 0 , even you can say in on/off state of a transistor. It was really very difficult process for the user’s interaction.

To reduce the hardness of physical component for interaction, we started layering h/w with piece of code.

Simply saying to remove the hardness of hardware , for making it soft for users, we used layers, as we calling now as Software.

Thanks Prof Raman for clearing my thoughts!
