Information technology has changed the world we live in. Things like social networking, e-mail, online banking and online shopping became essential parts of our daily life. Most of us don't imagine life without internet or information technology. Yet, a significant number of companies and millions of people are still far away from reach to the very basic IT technologies because of technical difficulties, high cost or being in remote environments. At ACORN ® we believe that information technology made the world a better place to live in. And will continue as the most significant tool to make it even better and better for coming generations. We believe that IT is a right for every individual, company or government institute. Thus, ACORN ® mission is to help everyone in building high level information Technology systems with affordable cost to achieve the principle of IT FOR ALL. ACORN ® is a Microsoft® Certified Partner. The corporation who made PC available to everyone. ACORN ® is using Microsoft® Technologies to build ideal IT environments for businesses, Governments and individuals. ACORN ® also offers training programs. In addition to design, consultancy and management services to manage and operate these environments. At ACORN ® we believe we can drive everybody to The Information Age.

What is ACORN ?

The acorn, or oak nut, is the nut of the oaks and their close relatives (genera Quercus and Lithocarpus, in the family Fagaceae). It usually contains a single seed (rarely two seeds), enclosed in a tough, leathery shell, and borne in a cup-shaped cupule. Acorns vary from 1–6 cm long and 0.8–4 cm broad. Acorns take between about 6 and 24 months (depending on the species) to mature; see List of Quercus species for details of oak classification, in which acorn morphology and phenology are important factors. It is known for its circular shape.

What is Software ?

Computer software or simply software is any set of machine-readable instructions that directs a computer's processor to perform specific operations. Computer software contrasts with computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers. Computer hardware and software require each other and neither can be realistically used without the other. Using a musical analogy, hardware is like a musical instrument and software is like the notes played on that instrument.

Computer software includes computer programslibraries and their associated documentation. The word software is also sometimes used in a more narrow sense, meaning application software only. Software is stored in computer memory and is intangible, i.e. it cannot be touched.

At the lowest level, executable code consists of machine language instructions specific to an individual processor – typically a central processing unit (CPU). A machine language consists of groups of binary values signifying processor instructions that change the state of the computer from its preceding state. For example, an instruction may change the value stored in a particular storage location inside the computer – an effect that is not directly observable to the user. An instruction may also (indirectly) cause something to appear on a display of the computer system – a state change which should be visible to the user. The processor carries out the instructions in the order they are provided, unless it is instructed to "jump" to a different instruction, or interrupted.

Software written in a machine language is known as "machine code". However, in practice, software is usually written in high-level programming languages that are easier and more efficient for humans to use (closer to natural language) than machine language.High-level languages are translated, using compilation or interpretation or a combination of the two, into machine language. Software may also be written in a low-level assembly language, essentially, a vaguely mnemonic representation of a machine language using a natural language alphabet. Assembly language is translated into machine code using an assembler.
