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.

Maybe 2004 or something like that. A friend gave me a copy of Crux, i tried it but it didnt really fit my needs at that time. Before that i tried a few distros such as redhat, mandrake and suse that came along with computer magazines.

I moved on to the new "Ubuntu" and ran that for a while but i didnt like their way of making it user friendly.. Determined to never return to Windows i ended up with Debian a couple of years.

I really got tired of outdated packages and precompiled kernels and all that crap so i decided to take on Crux once again and with some more experience in my hands i really found Crux suitable for me. A simple and lightweight operatingsystem. Since then it is my primary OS.
