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.

Heard about it around 1997?

I hear about Linux in the late 90's (97 maybe?) sometime as a friend was playing around with it. I had an Amiga and Windows 95 back then.

I first used it properly in a job in 98 and I've used it a few times since, mainly in work. I've only used it at home on the PS3 and in a brief stint with Yoper.

I've used Redhat, Mandrake, Yoper and Fedora.

I've never used it as a main OS at home and probably never will. I've got OS X and Haiku nowadays.
