If yours does have more than one, you'll find yourself in the happy position of having the two compete to provide the best service. How do you know which one offers the best speed? It won't do to simply look at their advertisements to find out what speeds they offer you. They tend to exaggerate. You'll need to look for proof of what they actually deliver. Where do you find real-world data? A number of sources exist.

Many people believe that all operating system versions under the Windows name have the same basic internals. Over its history, though, the operating system has worked on two separate, distinct technologies. It's important to not get the two mixed up. The DOS Windows line Windows Millennium Edition and all the versions of Windows that came before it (1, 2, 3, 95 and 98) were in essence not very different from the text-based MS-DOS operating system that they were supposed to supersede. The point-and-click Windows interface that the user interacted with was simply a software process overlaid on an MS-DOS foundation. Every move that the user made on the graphic user interface was translated automatically by the overlay into a form that the DOS foundation could understand and execute. As … Continue reading
What do you do if you're not happy with the limited Windows/OS X range that makes up mainstream computing today? If you'd like to run your PC on something different, you can always try Linux. For those who really want to strike out on their own and try something new, though, there are a number of choices. Chrome OS While Google's Chrome OS is a modified version of Linux, its take on it is so different that it qualifies as all-new. Chrome OS runs exactly one program -- the Chrome browser. Whatever you want to do on your Chrome OS computer, you need to do it through the browser window. While the focus on browser-based operation makes Chrome OS unsuitable as a general-purpose computer, it can do most of … Continue reading
Solid-state drives may be popular mainly for reasons of their improved speed and reliability. They also have an edge over conventional hard drives in another less-publicized area, though -- they are much more secure. How traditional hard disks work The way traditional mechanical hard disks work, when a file is deleted, it continues to physically remain on the drive for an indefinite period of time. The only thing that happens when you delete a file is that the physical area of the disk that the data occupies is marked as available for overwriting in the future. A file is only completely and irreversibly erased when the area of the hard disk that it occupies is overwritten. If you have plenty of free space on your drive, your computer may … Continue reading
In a television interview in the late 90s, Red Hat founder Bob Young once attempted to defend Linux against criticism that it was hard to install. The only reason competing products seemed easier, he said, was that no one ever tried installing them by themselves -- computers came with Windows preinstalled. Linux, on the other hand, needed to be installed manually. Ever since XP, though, Windows has been so well designed, even a novice could breeze through a manual install. Linux, though, has suffered from messy installation requirements. Lately, though, many Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Mint have evolved to the point that they are just as easy as Windows. You don't need to be a patient and dedicated enthusiast to get Linux on your computer. It's easy … Continue reading
