  1. I don't know about "special stories", but I've been using Linux on my home computer since Feb. 2005 (although I'll admit, I dual-booted for the first couple of years with Windows… I removed Windows entirely in 2008 and haven't looked back). I first installed Debian, but then switched to Ubuntu a few months later. I've also used Red Hat, openSUSE, and several LiveCDs (including SystemRescue CD, DamnSmallLinux, and Knoppix), and recently started trying Angstrom on a device I acquired a couple weeks ago.

    I first decided to try Linux because of the price, I initially stayed because of the quality, and now use it for the freedom.

  2. I've been using Linux since 2001. Used it for everything from gaming and programming to making art and self-publishing books. I have access to free copies of every version of Windows up to Win7, but I'd rather stick to Linux. It is a sexy beast.

  4. I work with Arch Linux, and I remember the countless hours it took me to install it the first time. I think I did 5 re-installs during that time because I messed with one of the config files when I was configuring it for the first time.
