do have a windows regimen you go through to keep it sharp?
defrags or malware cleaners or anything?
Not really for my gaming rig...
With an SSD drive you don't and shouldn't defrag.
Malware, I have something running resident so i don't have to manually do anything.
Don't get me wrong..Linux serves it's purpose , hell I run 2 different vboxed distros of it .
I just don't view one system as inherently better than the other.. Too many variables that go into a computer to say that.
for the most part i agree. i have used windows only since 98 and just recently switched to linux. my wife had a mac so i used osx for a bit but
im downloading mint right now.
i just remember through all the versions of windows i have had and all the computers i ran it on, i always had to have some antivirus going and then a
slew of things like adaware, cc cleaner, defrags and etc etc.
since my switch too linux i have not done anything and i have no antivirus software running. maybe i am lucky...
i am not what some would call a power user but i download quite a bit. i dont play games and i dont do any sort of social networking so maybe that
i wish i knew more about linux though. i think i am going to get the linux bible from amazon and/or start cruising the linux forums becuase there are
things i want to do and can not.
as smooth as i feel it runs, it is not as easy as windows. if i want to download this or that program on windows i just download, install and go but
with linux it is a touch more complicated than that.
i want to start messing with tor but there are a few steps involved. other things here and there.
have you seen this?
i think it is a bit pricey but i like it a lot.
