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 with SLS 0.99 in the fall of 1992, I still have all the floppies for SLS. SLS was buggy and I switched to Yggdrasil as soon as it came out, which I thought was really cool since it was a livecd.

I want to correct my last post. I took a look at some of my old cd's and saw that after SLS in 1992 I went with a floppy/CD version of LGX in 1993. The Yggdrasil livecd I had (can only find the manual, source CD and boot floppy) came out in 1995 at about the same time as I was trying a preview of caldera.
