    EXACTLY my path! I also started with Red Hat. After that switched to Mandrake. I especially liked Mandrake because of the easy to use interface and the online courses on learning linux. This was in the late 90's. Then I used MS for a while and with 10.04 I rediscovered linux. I became more active in the opensource world and with the coming of the Unity desktop, I decided to get rid of MS for good. No more dualboot for me. Just plain Ubuntu! Now I am on 12.10 on my laptop and for the servers I manage I use Zentyal. A set of packages on top of Ubuntu LTS that turn Ubuntu server into a fullblown Small Business Server.

    Mine was a Suse disk back in 2002 I got at Walmart before Novell bought the company. I couldn't get it to work because it didn't recognize my modem. Glad Linux has gotten so much better since then.

    Oooh, i bet that was exciting at the time... now its just history. Although System V is still running, don't know how it compares to Linux, Solaris and *BSD in terms of support and performance.

    Someone that has access to System V should to a benchmark comparing the current UNIX systems. It would be interesting to see how they compare. Oh and just for controversy you could add Windows and Mac

    My very first was RedHat, then Mandrake, and after a long 6-7 year break (not by choice) I got my own laptop four years ago, and have been Mint faithful ever since

    Caldera Linux back around, 2000 maybe? (guessing on the year) From a disk included with a computer magazine. I looked at the disk and wondered what this "Linux" thing was.

    Maybe it was closer to 2003/4 since I joined this forum in '04 and many other Linux related forums in '03/'04.

    With my wife.
    My first - Ubuntu 7.10 because W2K told me my 6 month old HDD was dead* and Ubuntu used it quite nicely.

    Switched to Xubuntu, Crunchbang and now using VSIDO (Debian SID) it's 64bit only.

    I've 'tried' half a dozen others, but never got into them seriously.

    *SilTaz Linux is still using that HDD on my MIL's old Conpaq
