Your First Time

1990s, Red Hat Linux - on a Frankensteinian collection of parts that vaguely resembled a computer. I think that it was some flavour of Pentium by that stage. There were RPMs for most of what I wanted to install but it didn't take long before I had to learn to compile packages to get what I wanted and I became familiar with Dependency Hell.

My recent return to Linux was on Debian. .debs instead of RPMs but just as easy - so not much different. A little bit of Dependency Hell because I'm sentimentally attached to XMMS, which hasn't been developed in years.

Debian 8 with MATE

1990's, RedHat and Suse5.? I remember buying the retail boxes. Ran it on an AMD x2 4800+ and a Pentium III 1400. Ah, the days of pure PC Power!
