    I am an opera singer and an alto baroque recorder player, I recently started taking an interest in studying the clarinet as well, more precisely Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A, K622.

    I am also a self taught artisan jewellery maker since 2006.

    I take a great interest in all things related to coding and always take pleasure in trying to make changes to my osC shop. The learning curve is steep and I therefore often make mistakes. I will never thank enough my developer whose intervention on my shop has been, and still is, outstanding.

    I believe I am not allowed to promote a particular developer, but if you browse my site you'll soon figure out who that is. ;)

      @Biancoblu - I had a client come to me with a Win 8 startup issue. His Asus laptop didn't have a recovery partition and he didn't have any back-up disks. A local computer shop wanted to charge him $240 bucks to reinstall a copy of Win 8. I installed Linux Mint 17 for $35 and he started doing the happy dance.

      @MrPhil - Roger that on Debian. I switched to Linux a couple of years ago and never looked back.

      @wlsnoops the problem with linux is that many programs won't work on it, or is it just me? I'm afraid people like me are stuck with windows or mac, but I prefer windows by far. I paid under $50 to have windows 8.1 reinstalled, not bad.

      If a binary (compiled-linked) program is made for Windows, it won't work on Linux or Mac, period. And vice-versa. An "emulator" (WINE, Cygnus, etc. may work for you here). Even interpreted scripts (Perl, Python, Java, etc.) may be written with dependencies on one OS or even a given window manager within an OS. There's always some flavor of Virtual Machine to switch among programs on the fly, or multiboot to run one OS at a time.
