From Windows to Linux?

I have been repairing and maintaining computers for over 20 years. Started work at MSDOS. Then Windows 3.1; Windows 95, 98; Windows 2000 Finally, Windows XP. And today – Windows 7 and 8.

These operating systems were far from always satisfactory. Firstly – paid and not cheap. Secondly, applications are also mostly paid. The third point is unstable operation, crashes, glitches and, in connection with this, loss of information. Windows is susceptible to viruses. It is necessary to equip the computer with anti-virus applications. At the same time, there is another operating system – Linux, which practically does not have these shortcomings.

In 2011, scientists from the British Physiotherapy Continue reading

Nvidia Pros.
The advantage is that Nvidia always optimizes its drivers for games. That is, these cards show fewer different glitches and bugs in gaming applications. But less does not mean that they are not! For those who are going to carry out mathematical calculations on their computers, CUDA technology is useful. But most users buy a card to play, rather than calculate any algorithms.
