As a freelance professional, and given the importance of new technologies in my job, I always try to learn new tools and ensure that my hardware and software are up to date. After all, I’m also the IT administrator of my little company!


Currently, my main PC uses Windows Vista Business SP2.
I have a 21-inch monitor, several external hard drives with more than 2 TB of space, a 10 MB ADSL Internet connection, last version of Bitdefender antivirus, DVD recorder, and a secondary PC with Windows 8.1.
