As it turns out, there is no actual quiz required to determine if you are ready for the change to your new operating system. The computer that I’m running now runs on a Windows XP operating system, and I wanted to figure out how long it would be until I would need to change to a newer system. To my surprise it took just a few short months, even though my machine was just bought two years ago. Now I can install a lot more software on it and run various programs at the same time without any problems.
If I were to take this same test today, I could probably guess that my computer wouldn’t last very long. Now I am in possession of a Mac laptop, which is much faster and lasts a lot longer. So when I take the actual test, I’ll know that I’m ready for anything. If you’re a beginner, you should know that there are several versions of Windows available. So you can run a Windows XP, Windows Vista, or a Windows 7 virtual machine on your computer.
There are several advantages to using a version of Windows as your primary operating system. While it’s not as fast as the others, it’s more stable. The programs that I use are not very taxing on my computer, so if I switch from Windows to another program, I rarely experience performance issues.
You will be able to get a free copy of Windows from Microsoft. This OS is what most people use on PCs today because it’s what’s most compatible with operating systems out there. Although there are a lot of advantages, there are also a lot of disadvantages. For example, it’s more complex than the others and requires you to learn a lot about the computer processes.
If you want something easier to use, you might want to use Linux. It’s a lot less complicated than Windows but still quite stable. Many people don’t like to switch their OS, but I think it’s a great choice if you’re only changing it a few times a year. On top of that, you can download various Linux distros that will let you run different operating systems right on your computer. So, if you want to do maintenance on your system and aren’t afraid of changing it, this could be the answer for you.
I have to admit that I’m a bit nostalgic about the good old days when Windows was the OS of choice. If you ask me why, I have to tell you that it was the “in” thing to do back then because you didn’t have any other choice. When web surfing, you had to use either DOS-based programs or the Windows Exchange server (which is still available) which is not only time consuming, but also kind of confusing.
With all of that said, though, I’m happy that I have Windows 7 now. It’s running most of my things on it, and it’s just so much easier to work with. The best part is, even if I forget to set it up on my computer, it gets automatically installed with the manufacturer’s tools. It really is one of the best things I’ve ever bought. And now I get to take the quiz that people have been paying me so much for…
