This is Trebor here. I Heard there is another Operating System Called Linux. Does anyone here own Linux?
Does Linux work good as an operating System? Does it connect with all internet Service Providers? Can you Install Linux in any computer that is compatible To Windows? or do you need to buy a special one??
Please explain as simple as you can. > I do not understand all The computer Acronyms. For example . I dont know what URL means im not sure how RAM and ROM works. what the difference between these 2 and how to monitor them.
it is so common for computer users to use Acronyms you simply can forget The meaning. or those who are trying to learn never hear the real words what they actually mean and what they do.
1. does anyone own Linux
2.does it work good?
3. does it work with all ISPs
4. does it work on Any computer or you have to buy a special one?
5. what is URL stand for
6 What is RAM and ROM. what do they mean and how do they work?
7how do you monitor them?
Again please explain as simple as you can so you dont go over my head. thanks
Linux is a free operating system supported by programmer around the world. It is a competitor to Microsoft Windows.
Unlike Windows, Linux is Open Source. This means that anyone who know how to program can create a program for Linux and freely give it out aor develop Linux as they see fit, in otherwords they can change whatever they want in Linux and not sufferent any lawsuite. With Windows or MacOS you will get sued if you change their coding.
Linux supports both Mac and Windows based PCs. It will work on either of them without much issue.
Linux is not only verry veristile... it can do more then Windows, it is very very compatible with older computers. You can run Linux on a 133 MHz processo with 128 MB memory and a 1 GB harddrive with ease. That is above the minimum requirments for Linux BTW.
1. No one own Linux. The only person with any rights to Linux is its creator. Linus Torvalds
2. Linux works better than windows and Mac OS in many areas, especially when it comes to servers, the internet and in a lot of cases desktops.
3. As for Internet Service providers, it does not matter. The reason is that they all use one of three consumer technologies: dialup, cable or DSL. Cable and DSL both use Ethernet to talk to the PCs or router. Dialup uses the phone lines. Modems and network cards are functional in Linux.
4. Linux will work on either Mac PC or Windows based PCs. Linux is mroe versitile than any other xunsumer based operating system available.
5. Uniform Resource Locator
6. RAM = Random Access Memory is the available memory to the CPU, or processor, to perform functions. It is like the available desktop or desk that you have to work with. The bigger the desk the more you can do, the same concept work for RAM. ROM, Read-Only Memory is different then RAM in the respect of what is available to the processor. RAM is easily increases were ROM is not increasable. It is there for things like your BIOS, or the system that tell your computer what it has and how to deal with the CPU, RAM, hard drive, cd-rom drive and so on.
7. Monitoring RAM is easy, you can use the Windows Task manager or another programs. Search on Google for more programs. ROM doesn't need to be monitored as you can't do anything with it.
I hope this helps with your understanding. If I need to explain in more lamen terms please let me know.
BTW, the latest version of Linux is Ubuntu.
