First Time you used 'Linux' ? - Lith - 21-12-2012
As the title suggests guys
Mine was Redhat Linux 6.2 (Zoot), Release date April 3, 2000
With kernel (Linux 2.2.14-5.0)
I was 13... totally 'ALIEN' to me

I really dont remember when I first time tried ubuntu (it was something like 8.04). Reason for try that is that was that I have been always interested by computer and compuers have always fascinated me.
But about year, or so ago I really started to use linux and first distro was xubuntu and then moved to arch and then to freebsd. I think it was hacking which inspired me to go play with linux but then *nix just took me with it and now I dont really even wanna use windows anymore.
^ short version of my story :D

My stepdad had a Ph.D in CS, our house was full of *nix machines. So I got exposed to it fairly early, with Slackware at that time. I was seven - that was 16 years ago.

Ubuntu 6.x and it sucked so bad I stopped trying for a while then I used backtrack(:3) and then used arch linux then slackware then took interest in BSD, FreeBSD in particular.

My first time using linux was when I was 11. (Haven't really touched Windows since then, actually)
And yes, I used ubuntu. I believe it was 10.04 at the time :P
Edit: Here is a timeline;
Ubuntu > Fedora > Linux Mint > Arch > Debian > Crux > wherever the fuck I am today.

PCLinuxOS was my first personal use, but I cut my teeth on Novell NetWare 4.x - not really *nix - but not Windows either.
