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.

Bondi Blue iMac...

Back in 98 I got a Bondi Blue iMac and a year later found Yellow Dog online so grabbed a copy of that, I think it took quite a few hours to download, maybe 10 or more, but was well worth it.

Linux (even back then) was a big step up from Mac OS 9 (well, in some areas anyway)... I remember the PPC versions of Linux were a little behind their Intel cousins...

I would have probably stayed with Yellow Dog (or some variant), but Apple released the beta of OS X...

I install Ubuntu these days on old PC hardware or in Parallels...
