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.

Back in '93 I installed Ygdrasil on a 486sx25-A friend from comp sci brought it over to my apartment and we spent a whole day loading floppies. Unfortunately my graphic card didn't have enough ram to do X windows. Later in 95 I replaced win 3.1 with SuSE 4.2 and used SuSE on all my machines until 2002 when I switched to Gentoo. It was in that year that I stopped using windows. I played around the first version of Solaris for x86(back '98- which wiped my partition table when I first installed it) and I played around with lot's of other distros over the years(Redhat, Debian, Mandrake-and then later Fedora, Ubuntu, Sabayon, and Foresight). Nowadays I usually have Ubuntu and Sabayon(Gentoo) installed....16 years of Linux now.....
