There are so many acronyms in the area of computing…so I thought I would list 5 useful links to websites which list computing acronyms so next time you’re wanting to find the meaning of a particular computing acronym, one of these sites might help! Its odd how the computing industry seems to be particularly bad at having too many acronyms – but I guess its a case of can’t live with them, but also can’t live without them.
