I'm Julius Schwartzenberg and I'm currently in my final year at school.
I've been a Windows user for a very long time, but I've been using GNU/Linux now for about 1.5 years on my main desktop. I already had been trying out different GNU/Linux distros for several years before I fully switched and I had also already switched to Mozilla and StarOffice.
There are still many Windows applications I would like to use on GNU/Linux though.
In the next couple of years, I really see Wine running almost every Windows application better than Windows itself does. I really got hooked to Wine when I got UltraHLE to work in Wine and it was running a lot faster in it than it did in Windows on my comp. I also find it amazing that Crossover just runs MS Office and Internet Explorer, while I have seen several Windows installations that were completly broken after trying to install one of these two.
That was back in 2004. Now I finished university and am working as a software developer. I am still using Wine from time to time and managed to contribute some small patches.
