Probably should update this post. Been using Linux since May or June 2000, when the kernel was 2.2.x. Before that I started using a computer back in the days of IBM and MSDOS 3.3.-MSDOS 6.2.1, Windows 3.0, 3.1, 3.11WFW. I stopped being a M$ junkie when M$ released Windows '95. There *had* to be something better!!
Started out with Mandrake Linux 7.1 Experimented with Red Hat Linux 7.1 (not RHEL 7.1) jumped Fedora Core 6 in 2006 until Fedora Core 8 (still running as a backup OS!), but jumped ship again when Fedora Core 9 came out -- Got tired of living on the "Bleeding Edge" and jumped to CentOS 5.3 circa 2009, then CentOS 6.1, circa 2012, and finally CentOS 7.1 circa 2015, after a BRIEF flirtation with CentOS 7.0 which was a God awful release that I dropped back to CentOS 6.6., and ran Fedora 20 (still in use) and by-passing Fedora 9-19 -- on a separate HDD on this computer.... Still Don't like living on the "Bleeding Edge". Will probably jump to CentOS 8.1 when it is released and by-pass CentOS 8.0 -- x.0 releases I have learned are best to be avoided at all costs. Have tried *buntu, SUSE, Linux Mint, and KNOPPIX which I still use as a good general purpose Utility Disk. That's my Grand Tour through Linux.
