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.

Red Hat / Mandrake

For me it became a hobby in 1998, when Red Hat became available as a downloadable ISO (via dial-up). I soon switched to Mandrake as I found it beautiful and more easy to use. That was until Corel Linux was released! Wow!

I also found QNX cool at that time.

I still wait for a distro that 'just works'. I'm losing some faith in Linux and therefore have dropped Linux/Windows for OS X.
