it might have been better if it was a how long have you used *nix based OS .
LOL I'd not want to artificially inflate it. Linux is not Unix. Though that'd certainly change things. I used a terminal to connect to a mainframe at Dartmouth back in school - so early 70s.

6 years. 4 years using Mint, 2 years using Arch. I remember the exact date when I switched to Arch but I don't remember the date for Mint. Arch was on 25th May 2019.

I on system76 currently, i only use what i need to.
Yeah, there's probably some binary blobs in there with closed source. Still, that's pretty awesome!

Also, this forum (the software behind the site) is closed source. There are opensource options, but I didn't make that decision. Hell, I wasn't even a member when that decision was made.

For at least that long when I paid for a boxed copy of RedHat 5.0 at the circuit-city
I had an old boxed version from a store, but didn't start using Linux exclusively until like a decade later. I think I saw your image recently, at some nostalgia post or article. Good times! Good times!
