What was your first computer? The first computer I used was a Packard Bell - stocked with a screaming fast Pentium Processor clocked at 133 Mhz ( a big upgrade at the time ). Windows 3.1 never looked so good. No really - it never looked good. My first computer that I could call my own was a Dell Dimension 900 - it was the last holdout to use a Pentium slot CPU - a P-III 500 Mhz with 128 MB Ram. I still have it to this day and will never get rid of it - sentimental value and such. When did you start using Ubuntu? Late 2004 - 4.10 was my first release. It was - as my friends explained it - Debian with a bit of sensibility to having a release schedule. What is the first distro that you used? Slackware! I believe my first release was right around the 4.0 time... 1999/2000? Up until 2002 or so Slack was king in my book - it's still a very solid distribution, but the Debian package management system stole my heart. That and solid hardware support. When is your Birthday?
