    Xandros, on the original Asus eee-pc. I didn't stay with it very long, but that was where I started. I still have a few Debian CDs around from way back long ago, which I never got around to installing, for reasons which escape me now.

    Ubuntu 12.04LTS coming over from OS-X 10.3.9 after my iMac died.
    I then moved to Mint 15 MATE and started to really like having a drop down menu. From Mint 15 MATE I did a bit of Distro Hoppin' to a few other Distros and ended up on Point Linux 2.2(now 2.3) with a MATE DE. After repeated fails at adding software to get SDR support I installed Kali Linux 1.0.6 which has SDR stuff already installed. I gave SolydX a try and it was decent enough but wouldn't work with Kino and some things like Dist Utility looked odd under it so I moved back to Kali for me and Point Linux on my wife's Netbook.
    Still get curious from time to time and download a Distro to look at via Live USB. One of the things I really like about Linux is that the Distros are free for the using and you can try em' to see if they'll work for you or not. Linux totally Rocks.

    I've been doing that for over a decade and I gotta warn you it never gets old!

    Me I actually have two, openSUSE 9.1 and Mepis linux 2004.06.
    openSUSE was my first attempt but not my first full time distro.
    Mepis was my first full time linux.
    So 10 years in terms of linux use, but I didnt start using linux without booting into windows for a long time until 2006 so 8 years as a full time linux user.
