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 heard about Linux, hmm, in 92 or 93 and my first Linux install was the SuSe spring edition of 94 (yes they didn't have version numbers at that time). I didn't have a cdrom drive then, so I had to bring my hard drive to a friend for the install ;)
It used to be started from DOS via loadlin and, oh, the endless kernel compiles....those were the days ;)
