Your First Time

1.  The Prince reference made me laugh, Cthulhu.  I think he was underappreciated for his technical ability because of his many eccentricities.  Check out his guitar work on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" during the tribute to George Harrison at the 2004 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductions as just one example.  

2.  I still love Unity, leon.p.

I don't have any interesting Linux stories.  My computing needs are so basic and I don't use any complex or interesting software.  I also guess I've just been really lucky when it comes to installs and hardware compatibility.

I first played around with Linux on an Ubuntu installation my friend had in 2010.  (Maybe Maverick Meerkat?) 

I started using Linux as a daily driver around 2011 with an Ubuntu 11.04 install on a new Toshiba netbook.  I don't remember the netbook's stats, but they had to be unimpressive even by 2011's standards because it was a netbook.  I don't remember having any difficulty with the default installation.

Since then, I've played around with other distros, but I still use Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity as my daily driver.  See boring.  But after reading some of the difficulties with basic installation, hardware, drivers, etc...  that I see individuals post here, I feel really fortunate.
