1995–1998
I remember spending a fair amount of time playing Myst and Freddi Fish on this OS. Those were good times.
1999–2004
2004–2008
Having an operating system like XP on a family computer made it a nightmare to use, especially when AOL was thrown in the mix. I swear, AOL killed my inner child.
2008–2009
Installed on the very first PC I purchased myself. I liked it a little more than XP, especially since I no longer encountered BSODs. However, its fate was sealed when I read about Windows 7 being released as an RC
2009–
Liked it more than Debian because of the community and thorough documentation, along with a well thought-out package and ports system. Still, it doesn't seem to fit as a desktop.
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–
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.
2009–
Introduced to this through Ubuntu.
2009–2010
2009–
A very nice OS for the desktop in terms of hardware support, security, responsiveness and stability.
2010–
Excellent focus on security, but not ideal as a desktop.
