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.

It was at a friend's dorm sometime in 1993, I saw his computer running something like a unix, and a name linux show up on the screen, Wow, it is cool. I thought it is related to my friend, as his last name is lin, and lin+unix=linux, haha ^_^. So I started my journey with linux, it was Slackware! I still remember the tireless time to download pile of floppies to get the new version. And floppies are not reliable, I had to verified them after write.... it was fun.

Since then I have switched back and forth between various distributions, but every time I switched back to Slackware. ^_^
