Food for Thought

I've come across some good reading that I'd like to encourage everyone to consider. It seems that average computer users are finding it more and more difficult to keep their computers online and functioning. If it's not a virus, it's adware and spyware. If it's not those, it's some poorly behaved piece of software rendering your computer crippled or useless. Since I haven't signed any agreement with Microsoft, I'd like to lay a good portion of the blame at their feet. It is my contention that as you free yourself from the entanglement of Microsoft software, the enjoyment of your computing increases dramatically. (unless you're into pain as entertainment) I found a nice concise article that gives good suggestions to aid you in untangling yourself from the Microsoft mess you find yourself in.

And for those of you who might be interested in exploring the philosopy of open source and its implications take a look here: Free Culture. You can download the entire book for free in PDF format. There's so much more to this subject that trying to deal with poorly written software. If you think that since you only do a little browsing and some email that this doesn't affect you, you're wrong. Educate yourself, you'll be glad you did!

I hope you find this information interesting and helpful. For those of you who are becoming increasingly frustrated with your computer and computing, we're here to help. Give us a call.
