[ale] non-technical Linux question

For me, it was around that same time.  I got started with Slackware...  I remember taking forever to get it installed from 3.5" diskettes on an old IBM 486 SX/25, with 4MB of memory, a Connor 420MB hard drive, and a Pro Audio Spectrum 16 sound card.  Getting the X settings right for the old 14" CRT was the biggest nightmare...  I've been hooked since... I went from Slackware to SUSE and Redhat at some point...now I live in the SUSE/OpenSUSE world most of the time...

I've read the JD bio from the announcement for the Thursday meeting and He says that got introduced to world of Linux in 1993 ...

What is your first encounter with Linux/Unix world?

Mine as far as I remember is maybe 1994-1995 year I found a little distribution called Monkey Linux http://projectdevolve.tripod.com/text/descript.htm. I installed it on the company computer running WIN95 needing no repartition. So I've learned few things back there :)

Around the same time I've tried Minix on old 286 Pc at home.
