Do you remember your first distro?
The first version of Linux I truly used, for any length of time, was back at
the end of the 1990s—in Ye Olden Times, when 56k modems, 3.5" floppies and VGA CRT monitors reigned supreme.
Linux itself had been a thing for a number of years by this point—with
both SUSE (then known as the gloriously mixed-case and punctuation-filled
S.u.S.E.) and Red Hat doing good business supporting it—when I decided
to really give this "Free" operating system a try.
Because I'm a nerd. And that's what we do.
