Interestingly, unlike AND, the OR function does not have the same meaning as what we take the word or to mean in everyday English. In boolean, the word OR means that the output is true as long as any of the inputs is true.
A modification of OR called Exclusive-OR (abbreviated either XOR or EOR) represents the way we normally use or in the real world. Its output is only true if one input or the other is true, but not both.
