Moore's law States that the performance of computer circuits approximately doubles every 18 months. This regularity was discovered in 1965 by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, and it holds up today: The Chips in all of our networked devices, from year to year better and faster.
it is for us, users, from Moore's law far and wide nothing. Our work devices are never as fast as we would like it to be. Any Speed is made apparent immediately by a larger power hunger in the Software destroyed. We know only too well of ourselves, If we become more productive, not to more leisure time and Idleness. No, it places the burden on us new obligations.
And there are still a Parallel, computers, Tablets, and Smartphones, so a man can appear: you can, just like us, with the duration of the life of the performance. A five-year-old Windows PC no longer sounds so fresh – so that the suspicion that the is a Microsoft year, roughly equivalent to ten human years.
To understand the problem of the humanization, however, contributes in any way. Namely, it is not so that the circuits wear out, traces calcify and the graphics card to the clamping force decreasing. Unlike us humans, where, with the years, the Hardware declines, with our digital equipment typically, the Software appearances way to blame for the Removal.
In English, this phenomenon is called "Software rot": rot symptoms in the operating system. Specifically, the term refers to a variety of problems, which impede the trouble-free execution of programs: the Remnants of old Apps, the dwindling reserves of go of free space, longer and longer log files, legacies and disturbances, caused by crashes, and possibly also viruses. As well as system components that are not quite on the level of the time, for the Work of the older programs, but it is essential. Such things are like Sand in the gearbox.
As the aging process takes place only in the Software, a for digital equipment, talk to the fountain a literal young – the mystical source of life-energy that we are looking for people in vain. It is the re-installation: When you delete the operating system, all Contaminated throw away and starts again, then the low-speed device is back as soon as once.
