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.

Most you guys have used Linux for long time. I used my first Linux in 1998 with Redhat 4 or 5. It was big disaster on my side! I had SIS 6215 display card that never worked and I also lost my Win95 OS with data. Ofcourse It was not much my total disk was of 2 GB!
Ofcourse in 2000 I had again chance to work with Redhat 7.1 for company that changed everything I moved my entire company to Redhat with 14 Computers. After that never looked back. Used Redhat 7.x,8,9. Fedora 1,2,3,4,5 then moved company to Ubuntu. Now we use CentOS and Debian on Servers and on Laptops/Desktops we use Ubuntu versions.
Thank you Linux for offering free software for so many years. It saved hell lot of companies money as well it kept me in job!
