1995–
I'm so glad I got into Linux via Debian rather than Slackware or Red Hat.
1995–
1996–
1997–
1998–2004
1999–
Started with RedHat but quickly moved to Debian and used it (or a derivative) ever since.
2000–
2000–
Debian is still my flavour of choice for servers. Ubuntu has some perks for desktop, though.
2001–
My first installation of Debian had 28 floppies.
2001–
The king of Linux distributions! Have used it or derivatives thereof on and off since the start of my Unix career. These days I favor its child Ubuntu, but still use it on occasion when a client requests it specifically.
2001–
The universal operating system is actually my main and preferred one.
2002–
My favorite distribution for servers
2002–2005
Rock stable. Also, initially one of the few linuxes where graphical tools did not overwrite your custom config files.
2002–
My favorite Linux distribution, mostly used as a server.

2002–2006
Ubuntu is cleaner.

My go-to OS for web servers.
2006–
My virtual server runs debian.
2007–
I have Debian installed in one of my computers. It is the base of Ubuntu, and I like it, as it is more stable than it, however somewhat less automated and end-user ready.
2008–2010
2009–2010
Using it on a garage server. Actually installed it for trying it out. I am not such a fan but it's not bad as almost no linux distro.
2009
Made the mistake of trying it only to realize a lot of my hardware didn't work well or at all, particularly with wireless and webcam. Might use it again, but only if I was running a server.
2009–
Running several server with this one, rarely do I have any problems with it.
2010–
Currently my distro of choice
2010–
I run this on a VM for now. For some unknown reason, I like this better than Ubuntu, even though Ubuntu's easier to use.
2010–
2010–
2011
Only used it once on my multimedia transmission class and it was only for the Asterisk soft phone exchange.
