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.
Asus X58L
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!
LinuxMint 19.2 (Cinnamon)
Lenovo B570
Intel Pentium B950
circa 2009
Wow look at all the old farts like me who got started last century. Big Grin
