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.

I first installed Slackware Linux on my on computer in 1998, but I saw it on my friends computer much earlier, 1995 or 1996, I guess. Starting out with Slackware was great, really made one learn things. Then moved to Debian around 2000, but Debians slow development cycles started to annoy and switched to Ubuntu in 2004/2005.

I've (and wife too) been using Linux exclusively on my computer since 2004, using windows only at work.
