Working as a technical employee; caring about animals and vegan; loving music and playing the bass guitar in a rock cover band; sometimes I play as a DJ.

Passionate with informatics. I had tried some Linux distributions in late 90s (Mandrake, Suse), when I did first trials to switch from legacy OS in 2007 with Ubuntu, looking for alternative open source SW that could do what I needed. In 2009 I finally made my PC purely Ubuntu-based.

I like programming and doing it as a hobby. Currently working on porting some personal code from Windows-based to cross-platforms using wxWidgets.

Following this answer makes Thunderbird the default calendar application. By the way, opening a calendar files makes Thunderbird to create a new mail message with the calendar attached.
