OS stands for Operating System, or the main "program" that all of the other programs within the computer run inside of (to put it in simple terms).
Common operating systems include Windows and all its variants (Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, XP, and Vista), as well Mac computers (OS X), as well as a few other, much less used OS's that are on the rise (such as Linux or Unix).
Windows is by far the most widely used operating system, and is owned by Microsoft. Macs come next, though still quite far down in the usage percentile. Then comes the "other" section of everything else that not many people have even heard of.

Windows Xp is an operationg system (OS) based on NT platform from Microsoft.
Windows 2000 is the same.
Red Hat is a OS based on linux platform, like Fedora.
Tiger OS is the current operating system for Macintosh Unix platform.
BDS and Unix are other platforms.. and there exist some more for different system like Symbian for mobile phones.
