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 bought a boxed Mandrake Linux 8.1 along with Chinese Simplified input method bundle back in year 2001 when I was a high school student.

Then I started my journey with GNU/Linux. Later on I tried almost all famous distros, several years with Fedora Core, Slackware and finally switched to Debian/Ubuntu family because of APT.

For myself, Desktop/Laptop, I am with Debian/Ubuntu, Arch and Gentoo. For work (Server), mainly Debian and Oracle Enterprise Linux.

I still have a photo of the 1st Linux box:)
