people have a fear for the PC. They will use office applications,
Internet, e-mail and more. Yet they always have a bit of alarm about the
PC the moment it shows an error or the moment it refuses to obey orders.
This comes merely from
the fact that these people do not know the fundamentals. There is no need to
know the fundamentals to use a PC but there is no harm in knowing. It is only going to
be all the more fulfilling to use a PC when you know the basics.
One says "I have MS office", when he just has windows
installed on his PC; I have the PC but no MS office, they sound like MS
office is default (automatically available) on a computer. Basic knowledge of what OS (operating
system) is, how it differs from the software; this is what most people
Fundamental knowledge like hardware is what you see
(physically), Operating System is the software
that enables the hardware to operate, is missing for many. For them, the PC
is a PC is a PC. They just don't know the details.
knowledge comes from
learning and it comes only from learning. Learning happens with an interest
to learn; when you lack the drive you never achieve. Knowledge of the PCs
working is both fulfilling and gains respect in today's technology infused
day to day life.
What lacks is an interest to learn, a readiness to ask the
person next to you and if no answer is forthcoming , ask your neighbour,
friend, relative, or someone else..
In our effort to bring the pieces together for you, we
layout some fundamentals through this section.
While laying out the section we will chose windows as the
Operating system of choice. although there is Linux making good show, the
popular operating system remains windows.
