Who uses PC and what for in our house.
Just me and I retired from a Computer company 8 years ago after working there for 40+ years. I use PC for most things except games and Music. I originally worked on developing the software that went out from the company with their computers. last 10 years of working learned all about PCs including installation and software. We used for communicating with the large scale computers and for developing the software for the large scale computers. Started with MS
/DOS on some of the very 1st PCs and left when WinXP and Win 2000 started.
What is different for me today is that I knew so much more about how the large scale computers worked, their hardware, machine code, and software. It was much fun but I am far removed from that for PCs.
My husband retired 8 years ago from a computer consulting firm and refuses to even go near the Computer anymore.
I also use mine to help our grown children ( both in their 30s) when they have PC problems. They only use computers for work, email, shopping, music downloads and photos. Both son and daughter choose to only learn what they need to know in order to use their computers for work. Considering that computers and their development were responsible for their educations etc this I find a little frustrating. Even though, I know little re Vista helped my son and daughter-in-law set up theirs.
In addition I help friends and neighbors with their PC problems. What annoys me terribly is that when someone buys a PC in the stores they are told "you have to do nothing , everything is set up to go for you"
