OS 101: Suggestions for Choosing an Operating SystemWritten by Josef Delinga
Continued from page 1
Pros and Cons of The Big Four
Every operating system has its positive and negative elements. There is no perfect operating system. Keeping this in mind, consider most common operating systems (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Unix). Mac OS X is great for keeping out hackers and for graphic design. However some problems are fact that certain software is not available for Macs. If OS is for a college student who would rather play Half-Life 2 than study, then Mac OS X is not best choice. Windows is very good for compatibility, since most consumers use Windows. Windows also comes with applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, Windows is weak against viruses and can get bogged down easily. Unix is good for networks, especially if for businesses. Unix has also been around for almost 30 years, so it is quite dependable. One drawback of Unix is cost, which can sometimes be a bit expensive. Unix is also complicated, which can confuse beginners. The final OS, Linux, is free and completely customizable. However, one major drawback is extreme scarcity of applications for Linux. Microsoft and other software developers are often very reluctant to release their products for Linux.
Whatever operating system one chooses, it needs to be system that will best fit needs of consumer. All operating systems have good and bad elements. Understanding how each system works, and system’s pros and cons is a must for anyone deciding on a computer and OS. An OS selection based on research and understanding will certainly yield highest satisfaction.

.Net Charts and Graphs Interact with Businesses and CustomersWritten by Joe Miller
Continued from page 1
I have touched on many of research and travel interaction created through .net maps and charts, but there are other benefits to individuals filling role of investor, client, employee, and customer.
Investors have access to financial statements prepared with .net technology, making it easier for them to sift through multiple levels of information important to their investment decisions.
Clients have ability to check status of their orders or to track progress of systems or other developing projects.
Employees may manage and review 401k or other benefit information.
Customers may not only research products they are interested in buying, but they can also, in many cases, test them out online.
Perhaps one of best features of .net technology, including .net chart, .net map, and .net graph, is that all .net charts are convertible to PDF through .net PDF technology. In other words, printing .net maps and charts will no longer cause right margin of page to cut off much of information. The .net map, as you see it, will convert to an 8.5” x 11” sheet of printed paper.
Technology is marching forward, and in search for helpful informational technology that will bridge gaps among business demographics, .net maps, charts, and graphs, will interact with and work with employees, customers, clients, and investors to bring everyone onto same page.
