I've been using PC's since 1986 and I bought my first own computer in 1991. Since then I've been introduced to MacOS, UNIX and OS/2, started to learn about Linux, as well as installed and administered Novell NetWare Windows, and server software like DBMS and webservers. In 2011 I bought my first Apple Mac.
