Computing: Less is More

When people I know ask me to look at theirs PCs, I try to focus that less is more.  So many PCs are stuck with crapware, spyware, toolbars no one wants and such.

Well today I ate some of my own medecine.  I took to Twitter, as I'm not as knowledgeable as I'd like and started exploring for Chrome add-ons to help me with the influx of information.  After installing a few, and a few others as well (while you're at it add this & that!), my desktop (i3 / 8Gb / ssd / discrete graphics) turned into a turtle.  AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!  Nothing worse than molasses.  After turning everything off, my CPU usage is no longer 98%.

Morale to the story, less is more.  Now I'll go back to my dog food.
