Top OS in the World – Operating Systems 2017

Lists of operating system

Operating Systems

Top OS ( Operating System ) thats going to top 2017.

An operating system is software that manages all of the hardware resources associated with your desktop or laptop. To put it simply – the operating system manages the communication between your software and your hardware. Without the operating system (often referred to as the “OS”), the software wouldn’t function.

For all Computer Geeks, 2016 was a real Programming breakthrough as lots of OS came knocking on our doors to use and
exploit. I personally used almost all available OS and for this i decided to compile a list for all who have been asking on the choices to make.

Lists of OS available are beyond counts but I would be focusing more on the common and well used.

1. Microsoft Windows 7 (Windows)

Although Windows is Still the most used OS in the world. Although its has the best user interface an OS could possible have,  The Security is as open as Window.

Windows 7 is the best OS from Microsoft I have ever experienced…
Easy to install… Crash free… Fabulous Graphics Support for HQ Games.. And more…
Windows Vista is the worst OS from Microsoft…
Its still the most simple OS in the world till date.
You can download Windows here – Windows OS

See The Price and specs of The 2 Nokia to be Launched in February 2017

According to a new report, the next Nokia-branded Android smartphone will be unveiled by HMD Global in February, 2017, at Mobile World Congress.

Currently known as Nokia D1C, the smartphone will be launched in two versions based on the amount of memory and display size. The most expensive of the two variants will cost $200, and it will come with 3GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display.


The cheaper version is rumored to cost just $150, but it will pack just 2GB RAM and a smaller 5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution and will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.

Previous reports also claim that the cheaper model will include a 13-megapixel main camera, whereas the slightly more expensive one will feature a much better 16-megapixel photo snapper on the back.

WhatsApp set to Introduce ‘Edit’ and ‘Unsend’ Features (see preview)

WhatsApp set to Introduce ‘Edit’ and ‘Unsend’ Features (see preview)

Without much doubts WhatsApp Messaging app is seriously making a lot of improvements every now and then. I’m pretty sure you are all enjoying the video call features now.

Another update will soon be unleash, and I bet, you’ll love it because so many times you might have sent messages that are meant to be for your friend to someone else and you don’t know how to delete it… but with the feature coming, it will tackle it.

Latest reports suggest that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will allow users to ‘revoke’ a sent message, edit it and send it again.

For the same, reports said WhatsApp is getting Gmail’s coolest feature: Recalling sent messages.

This feature is also said to have appeared on WhatsApp beta version 2.17.1.869 on iOS.

While ‘revoke’ and edit is definitely a cool thing, what is more magical about the feature is that the ‘recalled’ message will reportedly disappear or get deleted from the recipients mobile too.

Those who have groups will find this feature handy, as you will be able to edit sent messages, delete sent messages. This is going to make a lot of sense I must say.

7 Benefits Of Using Dating Apps Over Dating Sites

7 Benefits Of Using Dating Apps Over Dating Sites

7 Benefits Of Using Dating Apps Over Dating Sites

What’s better, dating sites or dating apps? By now, you’ve probably tried both. If there were a contest between the two, I think dating apps would win, no question, as they seem to have more benefits than dating sites.

As someone who has tried sites and apps, and has found significant others through both methods, I prefer the simplicity of the apps to the more complex answer-a-bunch-of-questions-first sites. Don’t get me wrong — asking (and answering) questions is great (and in my DNA as a writer), but in this short-attention-span world we live in, I think it’s easier to get to the actual dating via the apps. And that’s the whole point, right?

Here are the benefits of apps versus. sites.

  1. You Only Get Mutual Matches

Mutually matching with someone is a huge benefit of dating apps. HUGE. Instead of any random guy or girl messaging you, and you having to go through countless “Sup?” or inappropriate messages, with dating apps (FYI, a 2016 survey by Consumers’ Research found that 57 percent of women report feeling harassed online), you have to both like each other first before you get to communicate. This makes app dating more efficient and feel safer, I think, since you’ve agreed that you’re open to “talking” to said person. And, should you feel uncomfortable or realize you accidentally swiped right on the person (it happens to us all!), you can “unmatch” with them, just like that. Easy.

  1. You Get To The Point Faster

I know, some people like to answer all the questions that OKC and Match and eHarmony and other dating sites ask, like OKC’s “Do spelling mistakes annoy you?” and “How frequently do you bathe or shower?” But with the short, a-few-sentences-only profiles on apps, you can save the questions for actual messages with your matches… or, better yet, for a phone call or date.

  1. You Have Short-And-Sweet Profiles

Most dating apps give you a word count limit, so there’s nothing like a limited-word-count dating app to see how you are with words! You want to be concise, yet engaging. You want to tell someone your interests, but also give detailed information so that your matches have something to ask you about and respond to.

  1. There’s Only Room For A Few Pictures

Some sites let you post tons of pictures, but don’t we just need to post a few — a close-up, medium shot, and faraway one? After all, we all have limited attention spans and are 10 close-up shots going to persuade someone more than a key few? Less really is more in this case, and the apps have mastered this theory, too. I also suggest posting a conversation-piece photo.
