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.

Man, I feel young reading these comments. In 1995 I was 10-years-old, so couldn't try early Slackware... However, I have my very first computer in 2001, and couple months after that I tried TurboLinux 6.0. Didn't work. But Mandrake (6.2?) worked great, and I successfully erased Windows partition by accident ;P.

Never looked back, when I felt comfortable with shell, and started learning C programming on Linux, I was doomed to stay with it. Happy Ubuntu user now, after randez-vous with virtually any distro among top 20 most popular ones.

When I need to use Windows I feel like someone cut off one of my hands - useless and hopeless ;) .
