  • 1. Windows Vista vs. Unix
    Most important difference - Windows is a GUI 
  • 2. Windows Vista –Visual Styles
    Windows Aero - Fancy Pants 3D, Live Thumbnails, Windows Animation, Translucency, other stuff you don’t really need. Needs Powerful PC.
    Windows Vista Standard - Same look as Aero without all the worthless things. Needs the same processing power.

  • 3. File System
    File: The actual data, always has a .* extension.

    Directory: A way of organizing data.
    Ex. HW2 folder inside the Homework Directory
    Folder: Just another word for directory
  • 4. Shortcuts
    A shortcut is a link to a file in a directory placed in an area to make the file more accessible.
    Visual Difference: Arrow in bottom left hand corner.
    Physical Difference: Shortcuts aren’t necessarily in the same place a program is installed.
  • 5. File Server
    When you connect to a hard drive over a network to gain access to data, it’s called a file server.
    NCSU utilizes this within the unity system.
    An example is your K: drive. It is not physically located in the computer you are on, it is pulled in from the server! 
  • 6. Writing File Paths
    Start with the drive.
    Add a forward slash ( ) after the drive and each subsequent folder
    Ex. K:my_csc200my_excelhwk
