It is time for another episode in our monthly roundup of interesting articles and tutorials found on the web. As usual, we don’t cover only Windows 7 but also tips and guides interesting to any computer user.
Miscellaneous content: opinions, traffic details, surveys, announcements, etc.
Months before we started working on our book - Network Your Computers & Devices Step by Step - we tried to understand just how complex home networks are and which are the most common challenges people face when working with them. Even though we increased our knowledge on the topic through the comments we received on the site and few small surveys, we never got as close as we wanted to truly grasping the whole picture. In order to change this, we decided to start a study called The Anatomy of a Home Network. After running the study on several web locations, for a few weeks, we finally got closer to our goal. If you are curios to know just how complex home networks are, read on to find out.
We finally finished our Study on the Anatomy of a Home Network. We managed to gather 709 responses. That’s a great response rate and we thank you for the support in making this study. Now it is time to announce the winners of the 10 prizes we are giving away and reward some of the people who helped with this study. Check out this article to see if you are one of them.
If there’s one thing we learned while working on the series of articles on networking and our first book, is that home networks are more complex than ever. In order to understand more about the “typical” home network and how hard it is to create and manage, we need your feedback. Therefore please take 5 minutes of your time and tell us: How Complex IS Your Home Network? What do you get in return? Well... for starters prizes worth a total of $450 to choose from.
Reminder: Very few days left until March 31st. If you haven't yet helped us with this study, don't hesitate to do it now. There are also some great prizes up for grabs, to show our appreciation to those that contribute.
