Well,I only got my first own computer,the HP mini 210 Netbook laptop this year in April 2010 and then 2 months later I bought another laptop the same model HP mini 210 Netbook. Because I knew how to use it. But before that, I was using Internet cafes to write my blog posts and Facebook posts etc.As you probably know public computers in Internet cafes do not work as well as home computers because they are not so well looked after and everybody uses them. And most of these places,well all of the Internet cafes I have been to do not even have Windows Vista,they still have Windows XP. And some still only have IE6 or 7 instead of IE8 like they should have. So when I got my own laptop of course I had to learn how to use it. And do things like system restore,recovery and understand it all. Although Windows 7 makes it very easy as it scans and installs updates and in Windows the computer is kind of self repairing. That is some times when it does not start or Windows finds some thing wrong it scans and does repairs automatically. But it would be nice to have a second operating system on my laptop it makes it look impressive. I do wish it was easier to master the settings in Linux which is different from Windows. Andrea Borman.
