So todays post is on the lighter side. A few of you have asked about setting up a home server. Last year we talked about the reasons for having a server. So the topic today is setting up your own home server!
There was a time when there was a definite line, or difference between Macs and PCs. The software was different, the way they operated was different, and frankly, the user base was different. Not so much now…
Although there are still plenty of differences, the two Operating Systems are alike enough now to duplicate each others user experience. Macs users used to claim that Mac OS was the “easiest to use, most user friendly…”, while Windows (PC) users claimed that they had “freedom of choice” and the largest software library. For awhile, argument could be made for all of those claims. Again, not so much now.
Starting with Vista (arguably), the Windows interface has greatly improved its user friendliness, borrowing (some claim) many aspects that made Mac OS so easy to use. Mac OS now has a software base rivaling that of Windows. Mac OS users can even run Windows on Mac machines! While Windows still has the market share of personal computers, more and more people are choosing Mac as their computer of choice.

If you use a computer (and if you’re reading this, you must), you should ask yourself the following questions. Do I really need to update Flash, Java, iTunes, Quicktime and my HP print software every week? Do I really need a half dozen toolbars littering my browser window? Does every program on my computer need a speed launcher running all the time on the slim chance that I’m opening Microsoft Access or Adobe Acrobat or OpenOffice? Unless you have some sort of undiagnosed techno-compulsion, the answer to these is probably “no.”
