Ubuntu user since first preview release.

Linux user since 1994 (yes .. my first linux was an "Yggdrasil Plug & Play linux, fall 94 edition").

FreeBSD user since 1998 (i think).

UNIX user since 1989.

I've tried almost all the "classic" distributions, Redhat, SuSE, Mandrake, Stampede, Debian, Gentoo, Libranet and JBLinux are just a few that comes to mind (in no particular order).

Tried ubuntu after reading some /. posting about the preview release, fell in love in 20 secs, and immediatly installed it on both my workstation and my laptop.
