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. And most importantly – it’s free. Yes, and almost all software is also free. At the initial stage of development, Linux was difficult for the average user, since Continue reading

How much did the first personal computer cost?

I must say that April 1 was a suitable day for the birth of a company that was going to do business at that time not at all serious, namely the sale of personal computers. In 1976, in the United States, this business seemed highly dubious. Who could be interested in personal computers at that time? Only crazy hams. For them, parts were sold in the store, from which the Altair 8800 home computer could be assembled without special difficulties. Those who did not want to bother with a soldering iron and with a setting could ask the seller in the store to assemble it for a small additional fee. A home computer could be connected to a TV and, paying for an additional communication unit, to a household cassette recorder. What to do next? No one knew. So the founders of the Apple company, the famous Steve Jobs (1955−2011) and the now less known Steve Wozniak, not only two namesakes, but also two friends, decided to take up a clearly unsuccessful business. Fools! Stupid kids! Continue reading
