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.

First time was 0.09 or something. Fit on a floppy and I thought to myself, this could be the answer. Not much else at that point except a working kernel, a shell, and a few other utilities.

Truly become the primary os at about the time infomagic started producing the CD's with slackware on them (and I still have them.) Wow, that was a long time ago... Now I feel old.
