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.

Somewhere around 2001 or 2002, Mandrake-something. Bought a magazine specifically because it came with Linux.

Yep, I started off with Mandrake in 2001. It hung during the installation before I realised it was Chaintech BIOS problem.

I'd used Linux before then but that was the first time I'd installed and ran my own system because I wanted to learn so I don't think 'using' really qualified.
