I was clueless as well. But 8.0 and 8.1 were very scary. Now, 8.2 was a good release. BTW, I am currently teaching 8th grade and high school Algebra.

my first love was windows 3.11. My first linux love was Mandrake 9.1, I still have the discs, including updates I downloaded. I just can't seem to throw them out. Windows 3.11 on the other hand is long, long gone, with win95, winME.

Don't you care about you sons and daughters? Don't you know, we need you now! We can't fight alone against the Monster. America?!?

I'm with Ix. My first full-use distro was Mandy 7.0. Still have my cd from cheap bytes out of nostalgia. But my very first was debian slink. That was my teacher. I learned the boot loader and file system and users and permissions fiddling with my cli only install. I had a rudimentary x11 installed also but no window manager. I chose that because I didn't have a cd rom I could rely on and just went with floppy install. I then got Corel 1.0 but it didn't like my sound card. But it was enough to make me realize this was my answer to windows' failures. I got mandy the same order with Corel and tried it next. I was in love. That's why I feel a little peeved at how they've handled recent releases. 7.0 just worked.

Oh, I first HEARD about linux in a Dilbert cartoon. Dil was listening to his mother rant how she was going to email Bill Gates from her Linux box. I was testing OS/2 3.0 at the time and was curious what Linux was. Took me another year to look into it. I used unix on the SU campus and if I had known what it was I would have tried it sooner.

Oh, a note of trivia: Mandrake 7.0 was the first Graphic installation that Mandrake offered. Up until then it was strictly a text installation.

My first linux was Redhat 7.1

I was using IRIX and TRU64 UNIX on workstations before that though, that's where I caught the *NIX bug.
