"Making IT Easy."
Current Projects as they apply to A Perfect PCAPPC was created as a subsidiary of Non Volatile Technologies Pty Ltd (NVTech) with a view to investigating the practicality of using Open Source Software in small to medium sized businesses. At the closing stages of 1997, the Linux Operating System was still command line driven. There may have been some Linux distributions offering a graphical user interface but these were, until the advent of Mandrake Linux, very limited in the capabilities they offered normal users. Invariably, you had to drop down into a command line to do the simplest of tasks. This situation was further complicated by the fact that Red Hat Linux chose not to follow the same conventions as Debian Linux. Even at the time of writing (2011), this causes problems in that there are two distinct ways of installing programs. This complexity is very off-putting to normal users of computers who do not want to be bothered with this level of detail.
