Refurbishing your Desktop or Laptop Computer: $75 + parts Modify or upgrade your computer: The slowest part of your computer is the mechanism in a conventional hard drive. With no moving parts, the best modification to a computer is the addition of a solid state hard drive, which would easily double the speed of data transmission. The SSD should run the OS and programs. Conventional hard drives are ideal for storing and altering files. Have a clean backup and recovery procedure for your OS on each computer. Use a separate partition, drive, or Linux file server to store your personal files. Make a separate backup of all personal files. You can run multiple operating systems on the same computer, separately as in dual boot, or concurrently as in VM. Linux: Linux systems are the ultimate in reliability. Most devices are plug and play (drivers included). Upgrades cover all installed applications. Linux recognizes 60 different file systems. Linux checks the SMART data on drives to alert you when drive failure is imminent. Computers should be a joy to use, not an endless and costly headache. If you're disillusioned with consumer-grade hardware and proprietary software, then it's time to step up. There's no registration and no licensing either; you don't need permission to use a Linux system on your computer. Linux systems don't get viruses, malware, registry errors, file fragmentation, slow down, or crash. File Servers for Small Business or Home Office: A Linux File Server is a networked computer which shares a drive, partition, or folder with all the other work stations. Each work station has its own operating system and loaded software, and accesses work from the server. So all your files are in one place, easy to back up. Windows work stations should have their operating systems backed up with a quick recovery tool, but your work: pics, vids, data, etc should be stored on the Linux Server. Backing up your files can be very fast if you use another internal drive, which can be front-docked for quick removal. Using Grsync will copy only new files and updated files to the backup drive, saving you hours of time re-copying the same unchanged files. You never have to defrag the shared server drive or backup drive. If you do get a virus in your data, it won't affect Linux and you can scan for and remove threats with ClamTK.
