1.^  Windows is a group of several graphical operating system families, all of which are developed and sold by Microsoft. Each family caters to a certain sector of the computing industry. Active Microsoft Windows families include Windows NT and Windows IoT; these may encompass subfamilies, e.g. Windows Server or Windows Embedded Compact (Windows CE). Deceased Microsoft Windows families include Windows 9x, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone. Since November 20, 1985 Windows came to dominate the world's personal computer (PC) market until today.  A specialized version of Windows also runs on the Xbox One video game console. In 2014, Microsoft admitted losing the majority of the mobile operating system market from Android. Due that reason few years later Microsoft stopped developing and maintaining the operating systems Windows Mobile and Windows Phone.

2.^  Remote Desktop Connect Protocol (RDP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Microsoft, which provides a user with a graphical interface to connect to another desktop computer or server over a network connection. The user employs RDP client software for this purpose, while the other server must run Remote Desktop Connect Protocol server software. Remote Desktop Connect Clients exist for all versions of Microsoft Windows (including Windows Mobile), Linux, Unix, MacOS, iOS, Android, and other operating systems. Remote Desktop Connect Protocol servers are built into Windows operating systems. By default, the Remote Desktop Connect Protocol server listens on TCP port 3389 and UDP port 3389. In the past, access client for remote desktop connection had know as "Terminal Services Client". There are numerous non-Microsoft implementations of Remote Desktop clients and servers that implement subsets of the Microsoft functionality. For instance, the open-source command-line client r desktop is available for Linux/Unix and Microsoft Windows operating systems. There are many GUI clients, like tsclient and KRDC, that are built on top of r desktop; CoRD is such a client for the Macintosh. An open-source implementation of a Remote Desktop Protocol server on Unix is FreeRDP and xrdp. The Windows' Remote Desktop Connection client can be used to connect to a server. Proprietary RDP client solutions such as rdpclient are available as a stand-alone application or embedded with client hardware. Microsoft requires third-party implementations to license the relevant Remote Desktop Protocol patents. As of February 2014, the extent to which open-source clients meet this requirement remains unknown.

3.^  At the beginning of their trading career, there are many aspiring traders who will have trouble wrapping their mind around how forex trading works. If forex trading works at all. These questions point to the very heart of the problem – although they are taking the wrong approach in terms of addressing it. False motives, unrealistic goals, greed, inappropriate haste, lack of effort, and insufficient knowledge are the main reasons why many of those who try jump-starting a forex career leave disappointed and empty handed. Before you do anything, sit back and think about how much there is behind the forex market and how it works. Forex is a portmanteau of foreign currency exchange. Foreign exchange is the process of changing one currency into another currency for a variety of reasons, usually for commerce, trading, or tourism. According to the 2016 triennial report from the Bank for International Settlements (a global bank for national central banks), the average was more than $5.1 trillion in daily forex trading volume. The forex market is the "place" where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct forex trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can't pay in euros to see the pyramids because it's not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate. After the accord at Bretton Woods in 1971, more major currencies were allowed to float freely against one another. The values of individual currencies vary, which has given rise to the need for forex exchange services and trading. Commercial and investment banks conduct most of the trading in the forex markets on behalf of their clients, but there are also speculative opportunities for trading one currency against another for professional and individual forex investors. Companies doing business in foreign countries are at risk due to fluctuations in currency values when they buy or sell goods and services outside of their domestic market. Forex exchange markets provide a way to hedge currency risk by fixing a rate at which the transaction will be completed.
