Some Information about me:

My name is George A. Goundras and I was born in the 22th of April 1975.
I studied Applied Computer Science in Business Administration. I like computers. Computer Networks and Communications are my favorite subjects to deal with. As I was a system administrator at Ermis On-Line Network (Ermis On-Line is now out of business), I have learned a lot of things about Computer Networks and Operating Systems, such as Windows and Linux. The truth about Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows ME is that they are all based on old MS-DOS. There are improvements in the last years (new filesystem: FAT32 and long filenames) but these impovements do not change the base of MS-DOS prompt...
Microsoft released Windows NT and gave more stability on its operating systems. The user-friendly Windows 2000 and Windows XP appeared and as they were both based on NT technology they gave the User Interface facilities of Windows 95/98/ME but with the difference that they are true 32-bit operating systems.
My favorite operating system is Linux. I believe Linux is the O.S. of the new century. It is much more stable and has many networking and programming capabilities, so different from Windows. It is fully customizable and the most important: it's free! My favorite Linux distribution is Red Hat.


Except computers, my other hobbies are: going out with friends for a coffee or for night clubbing and dancing. I also like listening to my favorite music. I like Greek and Foreign pop and dance music, mostly mainstream but I have no problem listening to techno and trance as well.

 * I love my country (Greece), especially during the summer, when I like visiting the sunny Greek Islands. As my mother comes from Crete, I like visiting Crete during the summer as well. I stay there in a village called Tourloti, which is locate in the Eastern Create in Lassithi, between Sitia and Aghios Nikolaos. My father's father comes from a village called Platania, which is located in Peloponeese, Messinia. It is a village in a mountain and I am usually visiting it during Easter vaccations. It is a quiet place where you can enjoy nature and fresh air.
 * One of my favorite hobbies is that I like going to cinema to see a good movie with friends. You can find information for almost any movie using the Internet Movie Database. Also you can try my cinema links here.
