Hello, Mi fans!
Friends, When you buy a new PC, it’s screaming fast. Months later, it feels usable, but nothing impressive. After a year, you’re experiencing noticeable lag. And you're thinking, why? No computer comes with all the software we want pre-installed. That means we have to go out and add all the programs we need. The more we install, the more clutter that our PCs now have to manage. It doesn’t matter if you’re running Windows, macOS, or Linux, installing too many programs will eventually have an impact on your computer’s performance.

A computer isn’t much of use if it doesn’t do what you need it to do. But the fact remains that downloading and installing too much software can hinder your overall experience.
