Your First Time

When did you first install Linux and what distro was it? What were the hardware specs? How different was it than installing today?

For me it was 1999 (I was dreaming when I wrote this, excuse me if it goes astray). The distribution was an early Red Hat version that came with a Linux book I got. I was in university and talked my professor into giving me extra credit for installing Linux on a lab system that was sitting around. It was an older computer (circa 1995'ish) as I recall. It was a totally confusing, frustrating, and time consuming process. I had to learn about partitioning, find out the refresh rate of the monitor, and hunt for drivers. It was fantastic Big Grin
