OSX Killed The Linux Desktop (And Windows as well)

I was a windows user since Windows 95 era. I followed the edition updates up to Windows XP. It was a nice escalating experience. However, Vista disappointed me. Windows 7 managed to revive my loyalty to Windows but Windows 8 and subsequently Windows 10 made me disappointed again. I am not fascinated at all by the promises of Microsoft's new technology (read http://www.infoworld.com/article/2954263/microsoft-windows/10-reasons-you-should-upgrade-to-windows-10.html).

In the end, people just don't bother much what OS they use. As long as they can surf, listen to or watch their favorites, write codes etc in a simple, convenient and pleasant way, they just don't care about the OS running their PC.

At the moment OSX delivers these points. Effectively, it killed Linux and Windows desktop.

How To: Run A Web Server On Mac (The Easy Way)

OS X: You need only one tiny command to start a web server from any directory through OS X's terminal. If you've got a web site lying around and need to test it out, this is possibly the fastest way to make that happen.
Just navigate to the directory you want to use and enter the following command:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
You may want to change the port if you already have something running on 8000, but other than that the command doesn't require much alteration. It's a great little snippet to keep in mind (or in your TextExpander shortcuts) for the next time you need a quick little web server.

Download Microsoft Access 2016

Microsoft Access is a DBMS (also known as Database Management System) from Microsoft that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software-development tools. It is a member of the Microsoft Office suite of applications, included in the Professional and higher editions or sold separately.

Microsoft Access stores data in its own format based on the Access Jet Database Engine. It can also import or link directly to data stored in other applications and databases.[1]

Software developers and data architects can use Microsoft Access to develop application software, and "power users" can use it to build software applications. Like other Office applications, Access is supported by Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), an object-oriented programming language that can reference a variety of objects including DAO (Data Access Objects), ActiveX Data Objects, and many other ActiveX components. Visual objects used in forms and reports expose their methods and properties in the VBA programming environment, and VBA code modules may declare and call Windows operating-system functions.
