1992–1997
Used it sparingly, although never on my computers
1992–
Started with it, now my interactions are limited to "maintenance for third parties"
1992–1995
Some computers at school had only MS-DOS, back then
1995–1999
Honestly don't remember much of it. Needed a lot of maintenance.
1999–2002
First Linux I had. Was a good way to begin.
1999–
The everyday OS for me since 2001
1999–2001
A lot slower than W95. And I hated how IE got everywhere.
2000–2002
Not an extensive usage, mostly work stuff. Used to be quite stable.
2000
It crashed three times while installing it.
2000
I installed it, played with it a few days. Then it was gone. But it looked cute.
2002–2005
Rock stable. Also, initially one of the few linuxes where graphical tools did not overwrite your custom config files.
2002–2004
Was so simple. And like most simple designs, quite sturdy.
2003–2007
Been the Office-OS for a long time. For a time I had installed on top of it bash, blackbox, and various ports of GNU tools.
2003
Briefly used it to convert an old computer to "home server".
2003
I installed it once, then was like "why bother, I have bazillions of packages on other BSD"
2003–2006
On-and-off usage. Never offered any compelling reason to switch away from Linux.
2004–2007
Daily (home) OS for those years. I did not like the "super patched kernel" policy.
2006–
Maintenance, etc. Also, nowadays all my technically knowledgeable friends have switched to the dark... migrated to it.
2007–
<3. Daily OS.
2008–
Okay, it's the OS on my sister's PC. And guess who gets called to fix it?
2009–
Because my friends have it, and I sometimes use/fix their PCs.
I never really used it, but I wanted to help develop (the technical level however was, and might still be, above my head)
