Italian term or phrase: software di ambiente
This comes from a list of services offered by a web hosting and IT housing company.
"fornitura ed installazione del software di base e di ambiente"
They often speak of "software di ambiente", but neither "environmental" nor "ambient" seem to fit the bill...
TIA

English translation:Operating system software
Explanation:
Windows, for example, is an "environment" but can also be called "operating system", so this is the only alternative I can think of...
But I am not sure.
