The disadvantage of using Linux based systems is that there is no standard edition of Linux in comparison to Microsoft because there systems have different editions of each Windows base system. Linux have many variations which could be a problem in working out which could be best for the user.
Its trick to set up a new device using Linux. Linux is harder for new users to use because it’s not well known like other brands; it’s also not a commercial product. The support for Linux works in a different way. The user needs to look harder to find the answers to their problem when they are using Linux support.
Linux could run Microsoft programs but it runs on a complicate emulator so it’s not worth running it on Linux anyway. These programs could not function well and sometimes it runs slowly.
It is also hard for Linux to introduce in a corporate setting because of its small marketing share. It will cost some time to convert staff members into using Linux.
Also Linux cannot support a lot of devices or printers because of its small selections of peripheral hardware. To counter this you need devices that work well with Linux.

Microsoft main disadvantage is there security issues which Microsoft had a long time. Another problem is that companies don’t have computers that meet the requirements for next generation Windows operating systems, which ask for large amounts of memory. Some computers need to be replaced. Microsoft products could be buggy at first because of their marketing. Bigger teams are needed to maintain any Windows systems. Lastly Microsoft products are vulnerable to virus attacks without proper anti-virus software.
A rundown on the disadvantages of both
Linux:
* Many variations * Not user friendly * Hard installation * Not a commercial product * Difficult support * Microsoft programs don’t…...

Bullying and Dealing with Difficult People

...Dealing with difficult people not only tests our faith in God, but it also puts our witness on display. One biblical figure who responded well to difficult people was David, who triumphed over many offensive characters to become king of Israel. When he was only a teenager, David encountered one of the most intimidating types of difficult people—the bully. Bullies can be found in the workplace, at home, and in schools, and they usually frighten us with their physical strength, authority, or some other advantage. Goliath was a giant Philistine warrior who had terrorized the entire Israelite army with his size and his skill as a fighter. No one dared to meet this bully in combat, until David showed up. Before facing Goliath, David had to deal with a critic, his own brother Eliab, who said: "I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle." (1 Samuel 17:28, NIV) David ignored this critic because what Eliab said was a lie. That's a good lesson for us. Turning his attention back to Goliath, David saw through the giant's taunts. Even as a young shepherd, David understood what it meant to be a servant of God: "All those here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give all of you into our hands." (1 Samuel 17:47, NIV). While we should not respond to bullies by hitting them in the head with a rock, we should remember that our strength is not in ourselves, but in......

Difficult Choices

...Difficult Choices The Oxford Dictionary defines globalization as “the process by which businesses start operating on a global scale.” To make this possible free trade and open market agreements are signed, allowing companies to invest in developing countries and also giving them access to a wider and cheaper variety of products. The world is changing constantly and with all the advances of technology, communication with remote places is more affordable and faster. Globalization is happening, even when it has some critics. “The Pew Global Attitudes Project” states “people generally view the growth in foreign trade, global communication and international popular culture as good for them and their families as well as their countries.” However, the negative effects of globalization cannot be ignored. Air pollution is rampant and in developing countries like China, people are dying. Globalization has reduced poverty in 3rd world countries but it has also deteriorated their air quality. Globalization feed the hungry. In developing countries as China, poor people live out of nothing. IN “Poverty Facts and Stats” Anup Shah reports that “more than 3 billion people in the world live on less than $2.50 a day. They people have nothing to lose just because they don’t have anything that is a very serious problem, but in a poor country where there is not a lot of money, and for a lot of them, money has to come from somewhere else. When a country is struggling that much,......

Difficult People

...Difficult People Marvin D. Cofield Jack Welch Management Institute Professor Ardith Bowman JWI 505 Business Communication 10 Feb 2013 Difficult People  My topic of choice is on “How to deal with difficult people and their decisions even when they are your boss?” The reason I chose this topic is because I’m quite sure I’m not the only one that has had to deal with someone in upper management that is stubborn and difficult to deal with and the decisions that they make just make no sense whatsoever. This paper follows Munter’s Tell/Sell style of presentation (Munter, Ch 5 pp.86). I will attempt to capture the attention of the audience and show how the topic relates to them.   The mental and emotional connection is the level of stress and anxiety most people get from being in the position and how to deal with it. The stress of not being to state the issues to the boss for fear of reprisal. I think this should be an interesting topic to speak on and share my experiences and results. Even if some haven't had the misfortune of ever being in that position, I'm sure just hearing what others have to say on the topic will be beneficial in some way. We have all been there at some point in our lives at one time or another and if you haven’t, consider yourself blessed and very fortunate. Dealing with difficult people. Even if you haven’t been on the job for a real long time, it is very unusual to have not found someone in the workforce that you can consider difficult to deal......

...of irrigation?  (ii) Tubewells  (iii) Tanks  Q.7. From where do farmers obtain the inputs that they require?  Ans. Farmers obtain the required inputs from the traders.  Q.8. Why are farm labourers like Dala and Ramkali poor?  Ans. Both Dala and Ramkali are among the poorest people in village Palampur.  Dala is a landless farm labourer who works on daily wages. He fails to get regular work in  the fields because of mechanisation of agriculture.  Similarly, Ramkali hopes to get lesser work even during the harvesting season this year. Last  3  year she worked for less than five months in the entire year. Due to past debt, the village  moneylender has refused to give her any more loan.  So Dala and Ramkali are poor.  Q.9. Gosaipur and Majauli are two villages in north Bihar.

Dealing with Stress

...Viktor Frankl once said, “Man can preserve a vestige of spiritual freedom, of independence of mind, even in such terrible conditions of psychic and physical stress.” Dealing with stress is not the easiest thing to do, but to overcome it, one must first look at what causes stress, and then how to deal with it. What is most times thought to be the main cause of stress is only a small percentage of the true things that cause stress. Outdoor leaders are faced with stress everyday, and it comes in many different forms. The job of a responsible leader is to recognize that stress, whether it be with himself, some one else, or the entire group, and assist in relieving it as soon as possible and in the best manner available. Physical danger appears to cause most stress in the outdoors, but it is truly the ordinary things that cause the most stress and are the toughest to handle. It is not the most obvious and dramatical situations that cause us stress but rather the everyday trivial proceedings that seem to bring about the most stress. There are many factors that cause stress. Everything from ignorant people to poor planning and disorganization can inflict stress on a person. It’s difficult to list or describe the exact situations that cause stress because of the fact that it’s different for each and every person. Each person has their own pet peeves and annoyances, so it’s not the specific things, but rather the ideas of what causes stress that are of more importance. Nonetheless,...

Dealing with People of Different Race

...consideration when dealing with people of a different race, ethnicity, or culture. The Cognitive theory of personality development focuses on how people understand and think about the world. The cognitive perspective also deals with people’s motivation, decision making process, learning, and problem solving skills. On the other hand, the psychodynamic perspective focuses on the belief that human behavior is motivated by inner, unconscious forces over which a person has little control. In addition, the psychodynamic perspective deals with the development of the human personality in how we move and respond to our environment; it is also the reason why we act a certain way. The US is made up of an ethnically and culturally diverse population, in which it presents a variety of different point of views for many people. The way an individual was raise, the education level, and language skills are just a few factors that should be taken into account by psychologists when dealing with patients. I believe the environment in which an individual was raise can have a major influence in the development of one’s behavior. For instance, race has been an unfavorable factor in the American society from the beginning of slavery to the present. Race has presented many issues around the world because of people being judge because of their skin color, facial features, or hair type. Race has also had a major influence in the economic status and educational teaching of certain people. The......

Dealing with Difficult Personalities in Projects

...Group Discussion 2 – Managing Difficult Personalities The “Dominator”, the “Multi-Tasker”, and the “Rambler” are both a frustration and a distraction to the project team. They can demoralize the team by expressing negative opinions; derail productive discussions by preventing other team members from contributing their own ideas, and cause meetings to go off track and reduce efficiency. These team members all have a negative effect on the group dynamic. If Nancy does not address these issues, these people may undermine the success of the project and diminish Nancy’s authority as the project manager. Going forward, Nancy should take a pro-active approach to managing her team. Strategies that she can use for individual personality types include: For the Dominator: * Adopt a nominal group discussion technique. In this discussion model each member is asked to respond in writing to a question about the project. Nancy then opens the discussion by asking each participant to share one - and just one - of their comments/suggestions in turn. Nancy will record the ideas on a flip chart for group discussion once all ideas have been brought forward. The discussion continues around the table multiple times until there are no more new ideas or comments to contribute. * Wrap up the meeting with a “round robin” discussion inviting everyone’s feedback on the discussion, progress made and next steps to be taken. * Meet one on one with the “Dominator” and discuss the......

Dealing with Ptsd

...Dealing with PTSD Dealing with PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been an everlasting mental battle due to the traumatic events that have occurred in a person's lifetime. Educating ourselves about this mental condition can be very beneficial to our loved ones or even ourselves. Military members have been dealing with this condition before it was labeled, and some are still dealing with the mental stress and painful memories of battle. Even though individuals dealing with PTSD have a difficult time dealing with mainstream society, understanding Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the various types of symptoms associated with PTSD and Types of treatment options available for individuals. To better understand PTSD, it is good to know who and how PTSD impacts people. PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can affect anyone at any age that has been through a traumatic event (National Institute of Mental Health, 2015). "This includes war veterans and survivors of physical and sexual assault, abuse, accidents, disasters, and many other serious events" (National Institute of Mental Health, 2015).

Difficult Conversations

...Abstract This journal discusses what I learned from reading the book Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most. It goes in depth into what I liked and what I didn’t like about the book. I also discuss how the book relates to my life and how I will use what I learned and apply it to my conversations and to my life in general. The book, Difficult Conversations: How to Discuss What Matters Most, really spoke to me in more ways than one. Throughout the entire book I could relate most, if not all, of what was written to my everyday life. Most of all I have come to realize how I’ve played a crucial role in many conflicts in my past even when I believed I did nothing wrong. I think my biggest takeaway from this book is that everyone plays a part in conflict, that blame does nothing but make things worst and that feelings (when controlled) are a lot more important than I thought. I’ve also learned that I need to let go of a lot of things and start moving on with life. The blame frame: “produces disagreements, denial, and little learning. Evokes fear of punishment. We end up defending ourselves.” I find myself playing the blame game way too often. I was happy to read that everyone contributes when there is conflict. Everyone has a role even if they think they don’t. Thinking back to past conflicts i’ve realized that I find it difficult to move from blaming to a learning conversation. I’ve managed to convince myself that......

Insider Dealing

...Executive Summary The legislation of insider dealing in Hong Kong is aimed at prohibiting the misuse of particular information about a listed company’s affairs by persons connected with that company, who are in possession of that information, using it or encouraging others to use it for the purpose of trading in the company’s stock to make a profit or avoid a loss. The law of insider dealing is comprehensive in proving contravention of ordinance by covering five essential elements, including mental intention, connected persons, relevant information, dealings of securities or derivatives and securities. However, execution is difficult in Hong Kong. This report aims to investigate the causes for the low effectiveness of the law. It begins by defining the law of insider dealing, followed by analyzing the credits and defects of the existing law. It then focuses on addressing the issue of difficulties in enforcing of the law of insider dealing in practice. Credits of Existing Law The existing law is appropriated in terms of independent tribunals, strict penalties, and dual civil and criminal regime for fighting against insider dealing. Details will be discussed in later text. Defects of Existing Law Four perspectives of defects of the existing law have been indentified and analyzed in details. Insufficient enforcement of law may be caused by the narrow definition of “Connected Persons”, lack of clear guidelines for civil and criminal proceedings, difficulty in......

Dealing with Difficult People

...years tenor; I have supervised, work alongside and been the subordinate of some of the most difficult characters you will ever want to meet. Although, I will only mention a few such as; the manipulator, perfectionist, the defiant one, irresponsible, chronic complainer, procrastinator, substance abuser and thief these are just a few … there still remains too many to name. Conflict in the workplace is a painful reality and a key reason for poor productivity and frustration. Do you have people in your workplace that cause problems for everyone else? Do they create additional work for others? One point is clear--conflict does not magically go away and only gets worse when ignored. Certain types of workplace conflict are readily identified. Other forms of conflict may not be so easily detected. Small, irritating events such as negative attitudes occur repeatedly over time and can cause people to strike out at each other. In many cases, conflict occurs at the senior level of the organization. In these situations some kind of intervention is needed. First there is the manipulative employee this person thinks everything is all about them. At best, they're backbiters, but more often than not they keep score and seek payback years after a perceived slight. Such people are hollow at their core and don't know how to form stable relationships. Don't share personal information with such people, because they'll use it against you. Manipulators can be charming and might......

Getting Past No: Negotiating with Difficult People by William Ury

...This book explains way to handle difficult people. The way to end a negotiation in a good note is not to destroy the opponent party but to dominate them. Solving the problems in a shared discussion approach rather than pouncing on them. The author provides five ways in which the above can be obtained: Step1: On needs to control one’s own anger in a negotiation. He should maintain a mental equilibrium and discuss on each other’s interests in a calm way and should then think whether to continue with negotiation. Bu time to think: Don't decide on the spot. Step2: Do not argue. Step into their shoes and reassure them and help them gain their mental balance. This can be done by listening actively to their statements and asking questions that will make them feel that their interest and feelings are being acknowledged. Step3: Discuss the issues in terms of each party’s interest rather than their position. Step4: Make it easy for opponent to say “Yes” by removing obstacle to agreement. This can be done by getting the solution out of opponents by asking them ideas and through constructive criticisms. Use third party if necessary. Step5: Offering ways to make it hard for the opponent to say “No”. Demonstrate your BATNA at a minimum and a legitimate way without provoking , use a third party to promote negotiation, stop attacks, educate the other side and keep sharpening their choice: let them know you have a way out, finally aim for mutual satisfaction and not victory....
