Damn no wonder you have a better handle on this stuff despite being about the same age as me Shrak. I only got introduced into Gnu/Linux 2 years ago. The only time I had seen or heard about it before then was when a friend was trying to get Gentoo working on his laptop back in 2006. It took him like 6 hours on a 512kbs connection. Oh...the good old days right? LOL.

Although, I'm sure I'm on the more knowledgeable end of business majors about computers and Gnu/Linux. Still so much to learn or be introduced to though. Currently, a Kubuntu and Bodhi user (going to be a buntu minimal and Bodhi user next release I think) though on occasion I'll drop into the neglected Slackware partition. Mostly, it's just the convenience that buntus and their offspring give me outweigh the few areas of disagreement I might have with them. I'm pretty sure that if I didn't have an inherent ability for breaking things and being lazy/low on time during the semesters I'd be running Arch.

PS: Here's a funny thing...I had and loved my win95 machine until I got to university in 2006 (Vista). It always looks better (and worked better) when I mention I had a WinME machine. That thing caused me many sleepless nights as a paper that I had saved would magically become unreadable after ME would BSOD. In fact I actually turned it on once just to yell at it and it BSODed. I wish I could say I made that up but it actually happened...that's how mad that machine had made me. Fortunately, nothing Gnu/Linux has come close to that.

Ive yelled at my gnu installs several times. Most due to my stupidity though.

Nar I joke, I'm younger than yourself, but not by a whole lot. I think my first computer was in the mid 80s but it was definitely a BASIC driven personal computer.
As for my first exposure to Linux, I think that was around 2000 as well. I know around that sort of time I was running Win2k, Win95 (compatibility reasons, though -thankfully- I rarely ever used it), BeOS and Linux. And I think it was Slackware too - though I was distro hopping a lot back then. I'd ran Redhat, SuSE (back when it was still capitalised like that) and then settled on Mandrake for a little bit before switching back to Slackware for a few years.

Commodore, TI, Atari?

Yes that was a fun time, and the command line was king. So going to linux was not a big stretch. Still a learning curve, but it was easy to get use to again.

Amstrad CPC464. I found C64's inferior to Amstrad for developing on. I wouldn't know this until years later, but I think it was the start of the dislike towards Microsoft laugher.gif
I also spent a great deal of time programming on BBC Micros at school too.

Oh god yeah.
Plus I seem to remember spending as much time in the DOS prompt on my old IBM PCs as I did in Windows. So it's really not surprising that I tend to favour a shell prompt in Linux over most GUIs


I do think we had a bit of an (unfair?) advantage as in our day nothing was handed to us on a plate - you either learned how to use xyz or you didn't use a computer at all. Those were your basic choices. These days there is so much more theory to learn yet kids are starting off with much less skilled practices, so it's not all that surprising that most kids tend to favour web designing (read: using Dreamweaver) over real programming or systems administration.

You can add me to this group currently using Debian on my main computer. Ubuntu on my wifes HTPC and currently building another computer for myself and will definitely be using Linux.

Your wife uses (and likes?) Ubuntu?! Thank her everyday...seriously...the odds of getting hit by lightning while holding the winning Power Ball ticket are higher.

You know it's a sad state of affairs when I was talking to a bunch of future CS students at my university and the only thing they knew about Gnu/Linux was the name. I'm a freaking business major and I knew more about it!?

Debian - home server
Ubuntu - desktop (gamer from signature)
Xubuntu - notebook from signature
LFS - Pentium 3 "just for fun" machine

But mostly I'm using... Arch x86_64 smile.gif
It's a "weapon of choice" on my workstation.
I started fooling around with Linux in 2003. My first distro was Pocket Linux (http://www.pocket-lnx.org/ - who remember floppy disk now?smile.gif), second was Gentoo (2004) but it required to much from my laptop (Celeron 1.1GHz and 128MB of RAM) so after few days I've changed it to Mandrake. Now I'm 21 and I find it very difficult to use Windows(for me it's wintendo). But hopefully Valve will set me free with their "STEAM for Linux" project smile.gif

Sorry for my English but I'm mostly a "passive" user of this language.

I wish I could have more than 1 vote .. I use a couple of distributions.

My workstation - Arch linux
used for day to day activities, programming - kernel development etc

My home server/NAS - CentOS
stores music, movies, software, svn repository

VM's - just for fun.
