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 started using Linux in 2005... just! I booted up my first live CD on Christmas Day 2005 and it felt strange to be running a completely different operating system on my Mac.

Back in those days, Ubuntu's live CD wouldn't properly detect the monitor settings so I had to manually put the horizontal and vertical refresh rates into the "debian installer" before the live session started.
