Computer geek thread

Anything computers.Ask,learn we are all on them.

I find myself using Linux more than windows lately.It is harder to learn but it opens a whole new world.

I use the Mac OS. Anytime time I want to use unix I can be open the Terminal program and use it's native Unix. Linux is available for those who want to use an inferior OS.

That is all

I am in no way a computer geek, nor do I want to be. I use Windows and it does everything I need it to.

90% of computer experts disagree.Linux is the choice for geeks.

I don't know anything about Linux but I use my Chromebook for about everything and have yet to have any problems. My favorite pieces of tech right now are my Roku media players which let me cut the cord and get Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu, etc. without having cable.

You need to look into Kodi,it blows Roku away.And it's 100% free.

I like my Mac, plenty of applications written for it to make it usable. I don't like what Apple has done with some of the Unix system tools on it, but I can survive. I abhor Windows. I also like Linux, just don't think the applications available for Linux are workstation worthy or easy to use. Linux was a toy operating system 20 years ago, but has become robust and useful as a server especially over the last 10 years.
