    Re: How Old Were You When You Started Using Linux?

    I installed Ubuntu for first time when I was 13, but I started to play in virtual boxes when I was about 11 or 12.
    Can you guess how old am I actually?

    I'm stating at way over 40, but since I've been using Unix all my life Linux feels like an old, lost acquaintance.

    I was 28 when I first started using Linux and my first Linux Distro was Debian, then I moved on to Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary Hedgehog.

    My first experience was Ubuntu 8.04 at age 46.

    I had used non-GUI Unix back in 1992, so the Linux command line was quite familiar.

    It was between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2004, 56 years young!

    Heard about this thing Warty Warthog, just had to investigate.

    When I turned 50, I told my wife I still looked 25.

    She said I acted like a 5 year old.

    "Great!' I thought. "At that rate I should live forever!"

    She still says I act like a 5 year old and our grown kids are more mature than I am. My plan to live forever is working.

    At any rate, you'll beat Groucho Marx in his attempt to live forever. =P At least he can say he died trying, if anyone gets the reference?
