Daily (home) OS for those years. I did not like the "super patched kernel" policy.

Switched from debian sid to warty preview

My last Linux desktop OS before I got a Mac.

Most recently Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Used to dual-boot between Ubuntu and Windows 2000. Now I just used Ubuntu on the occasional web server.
2005–
Definitely a love/hate relationship. I like starting with a reasonable base, but major version updates are always an upheaval.

Still have my original Hoary Hedgehog disk. It was good then, and it gets better every day.

First time I used it was in 2007 when I took a class in which I had to use Linux. Someone said it Just Works, and since I was swamped with homework at the time I installed it and yes, it Just Worked right out of the box. I've been meaning to move to something more advanced because we all know this ease of use is at the expense of system bloat, but I don't have time to learn anything more...

Currently deploying Ubuntu 10.04 in production.

I think I started with it in 2006. I installed it on a Desktop machine and experience joy. Used it intermittently ever since.
2006–
Most polished desktop Linux. I use it on all my machines.
2006–
The Linux distribution of my choice, until now. Simple to use, easy for the beginner and its automation about a few things makes it user friendly. I also, couldn't say it is unstable or broken. It just works in most of the cases.
2006–
I think I started using it around 06. Not sure. Might have been 05. Still use it at course.
2006–
My favorite Linux distribution for desktop
2006–
2006–2007
Tried this OS out for a month and formatted. Didn't like the Gnome and switched to Kubuntu on my laptop for some months. I kept it for some time though it didn't seem so stable as Ubuntu, whereas other distros with KDE were more stable.
2006–
Didn't feel the need use Ubuntu until I got a second-hand G4 iBook and wanted to dual boot Linux and Mac OS X. Ubuntu was an excellent choice, even though the PPC arch was dropped soon thereafter.

Using it from time to time, mostly to set up Desktops for other people.

Still on my Mini 9 but OS X replaced as my main OS.

My primary distro these days, although I still dally with others.

2007–
Moved to Ubuntu Server after my Gentoo server days (mostly effected by a job switch), but in a way it was a relaunch of my love affair with Debian proper that had begun in 2001. I still find it the "best" server OS, marrying the best things about Debian with a set of newer packages and some other conveniences.
2007–
The only OS I'll ever run my web servers with. I use the desktop versions every now and then, but solely for development related use.

A friend of mine introduced me to this operating system. Tried it, liked it, installed it over Windows and never looked back. Despite dabbling with various operating systems, Ubuntu still serves as my desktop.

I use Xubuntu on my old computer. Runs like crap since I botched the install, but meh.

Writing this from Ubuntu :P Not the best desktop system though.. But for web-developer that's the best choice.. as every other linux :)
