Your First Time
#8
My first Linux install was 95/96 using SuSE bought from CompUSA.  I don't recall the version but something like 6.x.

The computer was an AMD K6-2 (500 Mhz I think) on a PC Chips mainboard.  I can't remember the RAM (16 to 32 MBs I think).  I know I custom built it.

As for my first Unix that was FreeBSD bought from CompUSA too.  I think that one was FreeBSD 4.x.  It was around the same time using the same machine.  No virtual machines back then but nuke and pave.  I also know I tried BeOS and OS/2 Warp on that same hardware.  I honestly like OS/2 Warp the best and in some respects still like it better than Linux.


A few years later I started on my Solaris journey and abandon Linux totally for many years seeing it as the poor man's Unix.  I was quite the Linux basher (no pun intended) those days.  I was all in on Solaris although not for workstations that was still Windows.
