Interesting facts about me

I've been in IT since 1975, I've worked on Servers and Desktops using Various Operatings Systems from RSTS E and WANG on Mainframes to Macinrosh to Windows to Linux on PCs, I've worked on Various versions of Windows up to and including Windows 7, since 1990, and worked on Linux based Operatings sytems in both the Desktop and Server areas, since 2000. In order to stay up to date, I have also tested Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10.

I've worked in System Security, Networking, Destop and Server programming and Internet applications programming.I continue to write Open Source applications, primarily using Python and QT, on Linux PCs.

My advice, based on my experience of using Windows PCs since 1990 and Linux PCS since 2000, is, if you value your privacy, security and want genuine ease of use, and reliability, replace Windows on your PC or notebook with a Linux based OS such as Ubuntu or Linux Mint, or better still buy a new computer from one of the many Linux OEMs. You will never again have to worry about Computer Viruses (which are really Windows Viruses) ever again.
