Hello, everybody! My name is Sergio Agudo and I love science, computers, and video games. Since I was a child, I have been obsessed with computers, and with what in an ‘80s Spanish home like mine, they called the little Martians machine. Today, to that obsession, we must add the Internet, as well as smartphones, and tablets.
On top of that, you can add that I love writing and communicating through words. I have been professionally writing for over five years now, and it is one of the best experiences I have had in my life. I believe that knowledge is not to be kept, but to be shared. In this sense, I think that the more freedom and neutrality the Internet has, the more we can all learn from each other.I don’t get older, I level up.
Some short questions…
What operating system do you prefer or use the most?
I use Windows and macOS indifferently. I think that each one has its pros and cons, and each one can serve you depending on what you are going to do, although I think that Windows is more flexible (especially on legacy computers). I used to use Linux frequently too, but I stopped using it long ago for professional reasons.
In your opinion, which is the best mobile operating system?
Both iOS and Android have their pros and cons. I find it difficult to choose one, although Android is more appealing to me.
What application is a must on your computer?
I have several must-haves depending on which computer I am using. On my desktop, I must have Google Chrome, Haroopad, Steam, Origin, uPlay, GOG Galaxy, Reaper, Guitar Pro 6, and Spotify. On the laptop, I also need Chrome, Haroopad, and Spotify. Besides, I use GIMP and BleachBit too.
And on your smartphone?
Aside from the obvious ones like WhatsApp, Messenger, Telegram, and social networks, I cannot live without Spotify. I also cannot do without the PowerAmp player: I do not care that phones have their own built-in options, I have been using it in all my devices for a long time, and I plan to continue doing so.
Do you have a favourite game?
How much space do I have? Okay, well... I have many icons spread over several generations, from RTS like Starcraft and Age of Empires, to god simulators like Dungeon Keeper or Black & White, FPS like Doom or Duke Nukem 3D, to the latest ones like the Soulsborne saga, or the last (and frantic) Doom iterations.
Fond of social networks? Which is your favourite?
I mostly use them as a way to spread my work and communicate with some friends. I use Facebook the most, although I also tweet something from time to time.
If you had to choose, which would you say has been the greatest technological invention of the last century?
For me, the answer is the smartphone. The possibility of having a pocket computer that you can take with you everywhere seems to me to be a great advance, in addition to the fact that it has totally changed the way of using and understanding personal computers.
Who do you consider has contributed most towards the development of software?
It is hard to say. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Richard Stallman, and Linus Torvalds, all of them have a lot to say in this regard. Personally, I choose Stallman and Torvalds, since even though they do not get along, they complement each other out of necessity. Without GNU, there would be no Linux, and without Linux, we would never have known what GNU is. I am totally in favor of opensource and Free Software, and I think it is important that the community of programmers and users get involved in the development of new software.
