i remember the first computer in my house, Some packard bell that ran Win95, i think we got it around 95. I first discovered linux 2001, i was eleven years old, It was a copy of SuSE in the depths of my dads desk drawer, i installed it on my amazing Pentium III running at a whopping 900Mhz. I think i played around with that, not really knowing what i was doing until a friend of mine gave me a copy of Ubuntu when i was in 7th grade, maybe 2002 ish. Thats when i really started learning it, got my first game server up and running on linux, reading a whole bunch of tutorials and getting familiar with the terminal, yes i know i was born a geek don't make fun. Since then ive been fascinated with linux, if ran everything from debian, suse, fedora, centos, gentoo, and currently Arch. Im now 23, 12 years later still using linux, Arch linux to be exact, and its been running amazing on my desktop for the past 2 years. I love linux, ive taken classes in college, im trying to get certified, and hopefully one day land a job as a Linux SysAdm. Theres just something about the open source community that i feel fits who i am perfectly, i love all things free and open, and i love to share these things with the rest of the community. I plan to use linux for the rest of my time. i use windows when i have to, thats about it, ive got my A+ and MS certs, thats good enough for me.
