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 first time I have ever heard about Linux was on Internet while searching through websites in late 97. Maybe I was interested on running a web server but I knew nothing about at that time. I grabbed a copy of SLS and Slackware from the book I purchased. But could not get it working properly back then. Later I got a copy of a distro based on RedHat6 and it was a breeze to install still at that time for me ;) I have used Linux as my main is for several months in 99. However, later I turned to FreeBSD and it is still my most preferred desktop OS. Though I like both Linux and *BSD as I think they all have their own merits. But these days I barely use either of them ;)
