I started Linux back when Slackware was one of the top distros, downloaded onto floppies with each disk holding a piece - kernel, network, utilities, etc. (And received on a 26k dialup line, no less - jeeze, times have changed!) I didn't really switch over until Red Hat 7.0, which IMO was the first that was mature enough to actually be used. I was encouraged to move by the fact that the newly released XP and .NET were dumpster fires.

Eventually I switched to Debian where I have stayed.

I added Apple to my stable of systems (career requirement) but that was ok since OSX would happily run Linux programs in terminal. I even managed to get stuff like Perl-TK to run in native OSX. But I always had a good tower for my main Linux box, and still do.

Today, in retirement, I run an M1 Mac and a Ryzen 5 tower for Debian - Apple for mundane net-stuff and Linux for serious programming. But, as my coding is now only for myself, my schedule is much less hectic.
