48. Been using CentOS for a couple days, but we've been using RedHat at work since....EL2 I think, and i'd personally been using Redhat since the non-EL version 4 days. Been using Linux since before Slackware existed.

Yep. Old geezer.

48?!? Not quite an "Old Geezer", but Yeah you've been using LINUX a L-O-N-G time.

57, ex-2nd-gen IBM'er Always more of a HW guy, used to scavenge working vacuum tubes from junk pickup day to fix old radios when I was like ten...
One day in '82 I was working in VM :D on my green-screen CRT when a guy came and plopped a tan box with two 360k floppy drives on my desk. Then I got copies of Peachtree and Lotus 1-2-3...
I think I first heard the word 'Linux' around 1992 or so. Towards the end I had a sweet Lenovo W-530 with full blown RHEL and a Windows VM integrated just enough drive me nuts every couple of weeks. I've managed to stuff most of that into an old T-410 personal box running Centos, but the bitch just blew up on me this week when I tried to update to Centos 7.4 and ended up with hundreds of duplicate files for both 7.3 and 7.4 in the same instance.
