What are some things that every computer user should learn? What things do you wish every computer user knew? What are some of the biggest benefits that individuals and/or society could reap if computer users learned these things?
Please boost, I honestly want as many serious answers as possible. Feel free to answer variations of the question for different levels of "computer users", such as programmers, office workers who use a computer 4+ hours per day, phone-only users, etc.
@willghatch 4. There are different levels of computer knowledge.
These can be divided roughly into _using_ a computer for a specific task, _troubleshooting_ to figure out what went wrong, _maintaining_ a system over time, _programming_ it to have new capabilities, and _desiging_ new computer hardware.
Each of these has multiple levels
of ability. _Some_ knowlege across all levels will make computers more understandable and useful to you.
Even many experienced users only know "using".
