Raspberry Pi

And why is it a computer

Why is 'PI' a computer?

Pi is a computer because it has input output and storage. It's input being the power source, it's output being the display output(HDMI), and it's storage being the on board SSD/Hard Drive. All computers must have processing and the Pi is no exception. Pi processing comes from the CPU or central processing unit, processing is even in the name! =)

What is the OS you use with pi?

The Pi's software (to my knowledge) doesn't strictly have a name, but it is still and OS. Pi's OS is simple version of windows. When you first boot on you be taken to coding where you can see it running. Once you put in your username and password you will have a lot of coding options, but to get the desktop you need to type 'startx'. Once at the desktop you know get to see why this is a simple version of windows.
