The newest iteration of our favourite operating system Ubuntu has been released today. The newest version of Ubuntu, dubbed 12.10 Quantal Quetzal sees many new features over and above what is already a fantastic operating system. I’m going to be upgrading and reviewing Ubuntu 12.10 over the coming days, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime though you can download and run Ubuntu yours... »

Which Is better, Ubuntu Or Windows?

Which Is better, Ubuntu Or Windows?

A few days ago I was speaking to a friend of mine who is completely none technically. He saw my computer screen (Ubuntu 12.04) and asked how I got Windows to look like that. I explained that it wasn’t Windows but rather Ubuntu. I then went on to explain what Ubuntu was. After about 30 minutes or so of ‘geek talk’ with this friend, he asked me a very simple question. So which is b... »

Should I Upgrade To Windows 8?

Windows 8 is due for release at the end of October and with the release a little over a month a way, I’ve been asking myself if I should upgrade my one and only Windows machine to Windows 8.

Which is Better, Android Or iPhone? [Opinion]

I’ve been trying to decide whether or not to publish my thoughts on the whole Android (or more specifically the Samsung Galaxy S3) or iOS (again, more specifically the iPhone 5). I’ve read a tonne of articles, some supporting Samsung and others supporting the iPhone and reading through the comment sections of these articles, there is always a plethora of ‘discussion’ betwee... »

Not Really Looking Forward to Windows 8

Not Really Looking Forward to Windows 8

October 26. How many of you have that marked on your calendars? If you don’t already know, October 26th is the official release date of Windows 8. Windows 8 is significant in that it is (in my humble opinion) the most significant change to Windows since Windows 95. Looking Back on Windows 95 I don’t even have to look up the date. I was so excited about it for so long. August 24th, 1995... »

A Week With Windows 8

A Week With Windows 8

Windows 8 hasn’t exactly got the best rep at the moment. The general consensus amongst most IT professionals and users alike is that Windows 8 is a disaster waiting to happen. A while back I wrote a review on Windows 8, but when writing a review they tend to be more based on first impressions rather than how a system actually grows on you. So, in the interest of fairness I have decided to gi... »
