Open Source Operating System

I’m going to install my first Open Source Operating System on my home computer.   Most people can’t afford to spend the time  associated to “free” products because of the associated “risk” and investment of time.  So often business go with Microsoft because of the reliability of support behind the name.  In my efforts to learn more I’m giving Ubuntu a go…

If you’ve have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment.   I hope soon after this I’ll install Android on one of my cell phones.  Android is the new open source operating system for cell phones.  Google helped introduce Android into the market place.

Here we go…  http://www.ubuntu.com/

Wireless Networks (N vs G Routers)

In layman’s terms consider switching to a N router it goes Further & Faster. 

If you use a wireless networking at home or for your small business…  Things to look at when you need a router;  Security, Range and Speed (The basics).  You can go into dual band routers that also work as network stortage deives (Just plug in an external hard drive or USB in the back) the list goes on… But this just covers Bandwidth and Range.  

The latest and greatest: Wireless N+

Make sure your network card is compatiable. (All new ones should be)
