The age old battle of which operating system is better for a computer is still ON! Just yesterday we had a battle at my workplace where in some of my teammates were Windows supporters and some Linux and Mac. We spent almost one and a half hours arguing which one was better. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and neither of them is the best OS in market for sure.
Back to my same old theme.. 😀 I was thinking about how the technology is getting advanced day by day.. I mean, there was a time when people did not have a computing machine or even a calculator..

But it was very inconvenient since I had to sit in the vicinity of that cable in order to have internet access while working in Linux.. I googled a lot and read through lot of articles in the linux forums and finally did the following in order to set it up:
