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.

The fist Linux distro that i installed was PeanutLinux. It was one of the smaller distros and had a nice kde desktop with all the nonfree stuff already packaged. I think it's called aLinux [] now and is used even less. I installed this side by side with XP. I think this was late 2002.

It wasn't until Mandrake 9.1 and its KDE 3.1 desktop in early 2003 that I became comfortable using Linux. Since then I caught the bug I called distroitas which had me hopping from one distro to next for a couple of years.

I currently use SUSE 11.1 with the Xfce 4.6.0 desktop and the XP install has been reduced to a VM for work purposes.
