Useful websites . . searching for Microsoft / Mac / Linux / BSD related results

February 1, 2011 Leave a comment

As a techie . . I heavily rely on google for answers to questions that relate to various IT systems (seeing as most people know more than me)

Well, the majority of my queries are related to Windows / Microsoft and supporting tools.

some of you may know this (and some of you may not), but Google has actually built a tool just for techies like us.

If you browse to http://www.google.com/microsoft.html you’ll be able to run a search that only queries websites that are specifically related to Microsoft support etc.

but this is not all . .there are a few others..

Apple Macintoshwww.google.com/mac Search for Mac & Apple things
BSDwww.google.com/bsd Search for the BSD operating systems
Linuxwww.google.com/linux Search for the Linux operating system
Microsoftwww.google.com/microsoft Search Microsoft-related pages
U.S. Government and state governmentswww.google.com/unclesam Search .gov, .mil and state sites
Universitieswww.google.com/options/universities.html Narrow your search to a specific institution’s website

Definitely worth a look (methinks)
