Linux Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at Computer World asks himself when he first started using Linux after attending the Linux Foundation Summit where several others were asked the same question. The Linux Foundation has posted a video of some of the answers; boy, do I feel young.

Maybe 97 or 98 for the first try on my own system, others before that. Switched sometime early this decade.

I have concrete memories of Win 3.X; first time I used it, last time, stuff I did with it, etc. but don't really have any concrete early memories with Linux, even though I've used it longer and it's been far more important to me. I think it's because I may have brushed it off as something inconsequential when I first came across it.
