    If it counts, at university we used Solaris running on tasty Sun SPARC stations. After that, I first dabbled with Ubuntu and SUSE live CDs which came with PC magazines of the time and because I had an old laptop which was no good for Windows, Ubuntu got a few more years out of it. I also put DSL on a little USB stick and used it to rescue a broken HDD.

    yeah, i'm with you there. before Linux, I was first exposed to the subtle power of UNIX on SPARC workstations and HP-UX pizza boxes. i even gave Solaris on x86 a whirl.

    Yup, same with the Sun SPARC. I recently found out I liked the way Solaris dealt with threads compared to pthreads, too, via a recent issue I had with signal interrupting read commands in Linux. Still haven't found an elegant way around that damn issue and nobody seems to know :-\....

    Though yeah, we had 6 labs, 1 was OS X, 1 XP, other 4 Sun SPARC. Though 2 years ago 1 got tested with Ubuntu, then last year all got switched to 12.04. Unfortunately Oracle's support contract after they bought Sun made it so that the university would have to pay ridiculous amounts to keep the license/support.

    My first was Kurumin, a Debian-based Brazilian distro developed with the intention of teaching people on how to use Linux. The distro was discontinued a few years ago. From that, I jumped to Ubuntu which I'm using for about 4 years. Now i'm intending to give Arch a try.

    My first was Suse back in 2002. I have to admit it was an awesome experience. Around the same time, I loaded BeOS on a machine at the shop where I worked. I was hooked on OSes at that point.
