diagnostic

...wendyAsExperiencedAdventerousUSER - experiments with software every two days as she uses FLOSS and Gnu/Linux, cares the most for maliabity of the software - as a result she has big expectations of flexibility even in software category which is quite conventional and stability focused like file-hosting. ...wendyAsAnInevstorInSoftware - paid compiled version of FLOSS audio software 5 years ago as she is supportive of economy and work around production, maintainance and support, but she also used closed hardware/software where she had to agree on licences she finds unfair, but then she was hacking it in order to use it as an expert - when she had time.
...wendyAsCommunicationSoftwareUSER - she is not using commercial social networks, so she is very concious of information transfers and time relations, but has no strong media/format/design focus.

Advise to: - collectivise research around hacking to save time - self-articulate software needs as her own Operating (system) perspective - change the lense by looking to software through time perspective
