TigerLaunch is yet another in the seemingly endless line of Mac utilities designed to bring us back to the “good old days” when the Apple menu used to be “the” place to go in order to launch an application or fiddle with the system settings. Those days are gone, of course (the Apple menu now gives you access to a few things, but in my opinion isn’t nearly as useful as it once was), but thankfully, people like the fine folks at Ranchero Software aren’t quite willing to give up that quickly.
You will just have to try them out and select the one you feel is best suited for your level of expertise. You can always at a later time,use one of the others and even a ‘stand alone’ program of some sort to make your website better, if desired. There is nothing wrong with any of the mentioned programs,I used Word as my very first website creation tool once microsoft office setup added that function to it. I have been active with computers since the early 70’s when I took computer science in college and majored in programming. At that time is was all ‘main frame’ languages since the internet as we know it today did not exist. There was one but it was not available for public use and many did not know about it, only the colleges and government.
You will be using your home PC or Mac, so make sure that it has all the up to date anti-virus software and that it is reliable. Don’t struggle with a PC that will cause you more problems than it is worth, if need be invest in a brand new one and remember that you are also investing in your new business.
A lot of office workers learned the first primitive form of spreadsheet around 1980 on a PDP-8, with a remote terminal that didn’t fit comfortably on one’s desk. If you had a big typing job, it was sent to the “pool”. The first PC arrived about five years later. The office, the home and education have come a long way since then. The basic www.office.com/setup software package comes with Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook. They have been improved and expanded through several iterations in the past decade. And the “professional got to haves” now include Visio, Access and Project. They are all equally powerful “tools”.
You will be using your computer, so are you familiar with email, word processors and spreadsheets? If you are not then perhaps you should microsoft office setup and get used to using it.
After the discussion, the lady finally accessed my laptop via the Internet and checked the system configuration and specification. She told me that checking system configuration and system specifications before performing the upgrade is very important. According to her, if a system doesn’t meet the minimum system requirements, there would be compatibility issues and that would make working on the system extremely difficult. So, one has to be very careful while installing any software on the system. When the upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 was over, I paid an amount prescribed by him for the support for Microsoft. It was a very small sum of money and I did not mind paying as I was really happy with their tech support. Thanks for the support!
One last consideration – be careful on volume. If you get an order that requires 25 or more of a given label, it might be worth checking with your local printer. I use Hillview Printing for bulk orders and they show up right on time and are perfectly priced. Sometimes the cost of the ink for your Inkjet will be more than using a professional print house.
