I started with computers early, in form of a HP 65
programmable calculator. This was swiftly followed by a HP 41c
and then a Commodore VIC 20
. The next step was a Commodore 64
, upgraded to a Commodore SX64
and finally several Amiga models. The Amiga 500
came first, and after that was modded ad nauseam I changed to a Amiga 3000
. Unfortunately the mobo died a couple of years ago, so now I have some Zorro boards gathering dust:
Working at Sun
for more than a decade, I gathered a solid UNIX foundation. When I left Sun in 2001 I switched to Mandrake
as my desktop OS.
Today the main OS I work with is Apple Mac OS X
, and Solaris
of course. And then there is the ubiqutous Windows XP
Since Sun got acquired by Oracle
I work there now.
