    must have been 16 or 17. Red hat was the one but could never get the modem to work. so its space was filled by win 98. 15 years later.... Ubuntu. let's see if it lasts. so far so good. though lately i am thinking about switching to Debian (stable) on the linux maschine. never left windows though....

    Nice to see someone close to my age. I installed my first Linux distro, 7.04 Feisty Fawn at age 47.

    I've been using Linux on and off since I was 12 - alternating with Mac OS.

    Mandrake (Mandriva) was my first experience. Followed by RedHat, then Ubuntu.

    Now back to Mac OS again.

    I was a sassy young lad of 58. Yes, fifty-eight.

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

    I was in my 50's when I first used Linux. In 2004 and 2005, I tried Red Hat, Debian, SLAX, SuSE, KNOPPIX, Mandrake, and other distros. It think the first Ubuntu I tried was 6.06. 6.06 was the first LTS. I didn't know what LTS was so I upgraded the computer running Ubuntu every 6 months until 8.04 was released. I had more than one computer at the time and I could boot from more than one disk drive.

    I used UNIX in the 1970's when working at NASA. Adopting Linux was fairly easy for me.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.
