I'm a hacker (in the sense given in the Jargon File). That's my parent's fault—they were too wimpy to let me have a chemistry kit, so they steered me toward electronics. After I discovered my school's Commodore PETs, it was too late to do anything about it. That must have been some 25 years ago.

Since that time, I've owned a Sinclair ZX-80, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, and a BeBox. You may detect a trend here, but alas! I have gone over to the Dark Side by now and got an Intel box. It's not running any Microsoft software, but it still makes me feel uneasy.

I was a BeOS developer since fall 1996. The BeBox is easily the coolest computer designed to this day. It even has blinkenlights for the sightseeren.

Unfortunately, Be, Inc. was not a successful company, and BeOS is no longer being maintained. As a consequence, I've migrated to GNU/Linux; watch this space.
