Linux Usage History:
Began experimenting with Slackware during 1999 (v4).
Experimented with Ubuntu, December 2004 (Warty).
Solely used Ubuntu April 2005 - Present.
I first tried Linux with 'Slackware' back in 1999, but with very little support it was not possible to fully convert. It took me a while to realise that Linux was more than just a console. I was relieved when a friend showed me 'startx'. At that point I realised that Linux could be a viable desktop OS, and I knew that eventually I wanted to fully convert. I didn't feel comfortable fully switching to Linux until April 2005 - and in honestly, haven't missed the proprietary system I once used.
