There are several ways to perform the analysis of access to a site, uno fra tanti è “Google Analytics“. In short Google makes available free of charge a useful service to the webmaster to understand the performance of their site on the internet, monitor access, control the frequency with which a visitor returns to the site, the Click sections, the click less and also keywords that after the route to the site search.

Today, however, do not talk about Google Analytics, instead I will give an answer to some users who have wondered where he is “My Computer” in Fedora. It seems that to be indexed in this way an old article in which I spoke of Windows virtualization with Virtualbox, nothing to do with the string in question, but obviously someone would want an answer to the question.

Let's start by saying that “My Computer” is the brainchild of Microsoft, was introduced above icon from the first versions of Windows with GUI, and it seems that it will endure even in the latest versions. I personally think the above icon pretty useless if you do not misleading, the user has the perception of a hierarchical order in the hard disk completely distorted.

Fedora (and generally any distribution GNU/Linux) is devoid icon in question, and manages everything so Smarter. Usually you click on “My Computer” to access external devices (mass storage devices USB, external drives, CD / DVD, etc..), Windows are displayed below “My Computer“, in GNU/Linux are loaded on the desktop. However some versions of Fedora (certainly the oldest) do not show peripheral devices on the desktop, can be accessed simply (for those who use Gnome) from the top panel to the voice “Resources” (not the case) selecting the device of interest.

Look here:  "Level out" the volume of our MP3 library with MP3Gain

If the problem is burn are then integrated tools in Nautilus (il file manager di Gnome) for burning, but I would tend to sconsigliarli instead favoring the good K3B (pesantino a little because of the libraries WHERE, but always functional) that usually does not fail.

Hoping to have removed any doubt about waiting any feedback comment.
