Seeing as the other topic got locked, and for good reason obviously, I had a better idea. How old were some of you guys when you started using Linux?
As for me, I was sixteen when curiosity got the better of me. XD Borrowed some books from the local library and read up on the subject. (Linux Administration For Dummies, plus a book about RedHat Linux.) I was blown away by what I was reading and started looking around for Linux distros. Installed DSL Linux on one of my older machines not too long afterwards, got to trying out PCLinuxOS2007, and then the next thing you know, I'm settling into Ubuntu 8.04 on a native dual-boot. The rest is history. =P
