This is done by the computer manufacturer to ensure that the computer is ready to use right out of the box. The operating system is necessary for the computer to function properly and allows the user to interact with the hardware and software on the computer. Therefore, the statement "Operating systems usually come pre-loaded on any computer they buy" is true.

GUIs have become the standard interface for most operating systems today, including Windows, macOS, and Linux.
