CP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication language or protocol of the Internet. It can also be used as a communications protocol in a private network (either an intranet or an extranet). When you are set up with direct access to the Internet, your computer is provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program just as every other computer that you may send messages to or get information from also has a copy of TCP/IP.

These are programs that are used to do certain tasks, such as word processing, drafting, etc. Basically, if you have Microsoft Office, you'd be using all of those programs to do different task.

that would be like becoming an expert at Windows XP, or Mac OS X, etc.

Well, what do you like to do with computers? Programming, networking, word processing, etc?
