So from the previous post, we now know what the hard drive is and why we use it. But if you're curious, you might want to know how it works. How can we store 4 trillion yes's or no's (1 and 0 aka binary), which is actually 500 GB, and the size of my hard drive. There are two types of hard drives: SSD (Solid State Drive) and HDD (Hard Disk Drive).
Basic Memory/Data storage
Ever turn on a device and see things were saved after you shut it down? Like your phone settings, downloaded software to your video game console, a program for your computer? For this, you can thank your hard drive.
So now that we know about the different parts of a computer, we need to know the different plugs and wires of the computer. Do you know your VGA from your HDMI or your USB from your ethernet? That's what this post will cover.
So as there are internal parts, therere external parts. Depending on the type of a computer you have, the parts may or may not be built in (for example a laptop has a builtin screen, keyboard, mouse/touchpad, etc.). I'm going to assume a normal PC is in question.
Computers. In the 21st century, we humans rely majorly on computers and technology. With\this series, I hope that you, the person reading this, will hopefully understand and appreciate decades of work and inspiration to get us where we are today. If not, that's fine too.
Welcome to your tour guide to Linux (well, Ubuntu, but it's still a distro)!
I am your tour guide, scoutchorton. This will be a long journey, but I will help you.
I have used Ubuntu for over a year now, and I know how to use it very well. With that being said, there are things I don't know, but that's what learning is for!
