It was a SuSE Linux that my friend gave me in 2004 (I basically got an illegal copy of a Linux distro from him Big Grin), it was 6 CDs, and I don't remember what all the CDs were for.
I installed it to dual boot with Windows XP on our brand new family computer that was coming with an AMD Athlon XP 2400+ and some ATi Radeon graphics. I played a lot with a puzzle game called 'Enigma', tried to do something in Blender, but I couldn't even move the cube that's in the new project, and the media player sometimes went silent while playing my MP3s.
My dad was not impressed that he had to select Windows manually whenever he wanted to work on the PC, and I was off to high school living in a dorm anyways, so it got nuked off the system, leaving us with Windows.

Now I'm exploring Linux with Arch, so... how different it is now? Very Big Grin
I am discovering Arch Linux as a total Linux newbie, and try to share my experience. I've managed to produce a working bootable USB and got my main PC up and running!
