Linux user since RedHat 5.2
First became associated with computers in 1968 immediately following military duty when I hired with a Silicon Valley firm as a QC Tech working with half inch computer tape products used with IBM 360/370, Burroughs, CDC, etc mainframe computers. Experience ranged from QC/QA Technician to Recording Performance, Field and Sr Quality Engineering responsibilities while concurrently enrolled in college working toward an AS Degree. Hired on with a small 5.25 floppy startup company early 80's as Recording Perfomance Test Lab Manager later promoted to QA Manger reporting to CEO/CFO.
First PC was a 1991 486DX/25 used many years to build upon QuickBasic and VB6 programing skills. Now self employed am currently on a self motivated crash program to learn Win32 C and Unix Posix API/Signaling and starting to get a feel for it. Attempting to contribute to winehq-devel, with their kind help, to implement more API calls to enable CrossOver Wine to become more capable of running Win32 under Linux.
