First kernel was 0.99pl13. At first I didn't know what to do with it, but remember colour ls seeming really cool.
1993–

1993–
A workhorse; regardless of what else I play with, I always come back to Linux.

Redhat at first. These days CentOS at work, Ubuntu and/or Debian at home.
1997–
Started playing around with something called Red Hat in 1997.
1997–
Used slackware, took me couple of days to install it correctly.. was fun
1997–
As web development server platform, including database. It's all there. But I am disappointed that there are not more O/S level abstractions, and no move to an object oriented, encapsulated approach. Needs more brave evolution is my view.
1997–
By far my favorite OS

Dabbled in a few distributions for a while, then made a permanent switch in 2003. Haven't looked back.

Ran it on my desktops for a while, but went over to OS X in 2005, except for a period in 2007-2008 when I just ran Ubuntu. Ambivalent about switching.

2005–
Knoppix; crazily enough it was installed on my hard disk.
2006–
Since I started experimenting with distributions of GNU/Linux, my point of view about computer science changed dramatically. I could be able to dive into the ins and outs of an operating system's structure and study how things work. The open source community and the hacker spirit are pretty much expressed through Linux and the software written for it. I strongly recommend it to anyone really interested in computers and, practically everyone.
