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 became aware of Linux in 1997 but didn't first try it until 1999. I used an already-outdated version of Caldera that used a 1.x version of the kernel. Later I used RedHat 6. Then Mandrake. Then Corel Linux. And the list goes on from there. I've tried most major Linux distributions in the past 10 years, I think. Also have played around with NetBSD, OpenBSD, and FreeBSD. And even Plan 9 from Bell Labs.
