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.

Since 1999

Used since RedHat 5.2 called Apollo, it was a great release at that time. It was 1999. It had FVWM/Win95 look and it was a huge beast to configure but it brought fun back to computing.

However, it's only now ten years later that I am actually almost almost getting everyone in my home to step away from Windows XP and adopt Ubuntu as their desktop. Since Windows XP is so "obsolete" now, and nobody wants to face the daunting task to migrate to Vista/Win7... my family is actually accepting the idea of running Ubuntu. (specially my wife).

Anyone explain why wives always prefer Windows? Damn...
