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 knew about Linux since first starting to understand Operating Systems (well, more like the XP SP2 days, when I really started going hardcore techie).

I never used for real until last year, when I was practically forced to for school. Seeing how its easy on outdated hardware (and how my hardware is becoming outdated), I installed Ubuntu for the first time back in December.

And man, was I pleased ;) ...
I now have several LiveCDs burned, tried a few distros, and found Ubuntu's community really inviting. (I love the Linux-competition environment, though. It's amazing-- they're pushing each other every moment ;) !!)

Now, I'm thinking of moving to CrunchBang Linux. In fact, I'm on a LiveCD right now ;) .. Really lightweight and worth the tradeoff once I learn it all..
