What Is What

I’ve spoken with 3 different people over the weekend, who seriously thought that their browser window, was their operating system. They had no clue, other than to say, “Windows” when asked what they were running. (One of them was on a Mac!)

Computer users are no more than appliance operators now days.(Something that new amateur radio operators are accused of now too, so you’re in good company.)  Computers have become so ubiquitous that no real input is required from their owner outside of the power button, mouse, and keyboard. I find little interest, even in young people, to know what is really going on with their computer. Perhaps that is why tablet and smart-phone makers are doing so well…

Please, if you still have and use a desktop computer, then get to know it, learn it, and upgrade it to Linux!
