By far, this is the simplest tutorial I have ever done! :-D I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that all of you know how to do it in Windows, but if you need to know how on Mac OS X or Linux, here’s how:

In Windows XP: Copy the font to ‘C:/WINDOWS/Fonts’

In Windows Vista: Right click the font and select ‘Install’

Mac OS X: Double click the font and select ‘Install font’

In Linux: Copy the font to ‘fonts:///’

Enjoy ;)


The OS War

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Ubuntu Linux — Ubuntu Linux is a free OS, just like Windows XP — but for free. When I say just like Windows XP, I mean it is something that you run on your computer/laptop. Not a OS that everyone complains about. :P They’re completely 2 different things!

I’m sure you’ve heard of XP, Vista, and Mac OS X, so I don’t think I need to tell you a bit about it like Linux; but I will anyway. XP, the most used operating system in the world, and made by Microsoft, and is probably what you run. Vista, the XP-wannabe IMO, has too many bugs, is improving, but not being given a second chance. Mac, the “perfect” alternative to Windows, in many people’s minds, but it too has some downsides.

In this post, we’ll (me :-P) be comparing 4 operating systems (OS’), Ubuntu Linux, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and last but not least, Mac OS X. Why does this matter, you ask? You’ll just go with the popular one? XP? No my friend, this is gonna help you decide on which is best for you :-) Read the rest »
