I've been a Linux user for about 8 years now. I first installed got into Linux using Redhat... I believe it was one of their first versions back then.
Anyhow.... I've been fiddling around with it for about 5 years but I never really used it as a main system. Then I got in the need of a server (webserver with PHP and MySQL). After that moment, everything went quite quick: I started to enjoy all the nice servers I could run on my Linux system and I experimented quite some. Last year I got me a fileserver and I used Linux with Samba for it. Mainwhile, my second desktop was equipped with Redhat (8.0 and 9.0) to fiddle some more around with it. Althoigh I really loved it for my server, I couldn't get really used to it for my desktop needs.
But then... then came SuSe 9.0 pro. This was the first distro that could convince me that it was ready for desktop use AND it didn't whine about not-accepted hardware. I installed it on my laptop and I didn't boot to Windows ever since..
My main desktop is running on both XP and SuSe 9.0 pro, but as I am still finetuning SuSe (just got a new mainboard etc so I did a reinstall) I mainly use XP. My server is still running on Redhat 9.0 (with apt!), my second desktop has Xandros 2.0 installed etc etc..
I'm planning to use the penguin more and more. My second server, a W2k system will be replaced in a couple of months by a VM in my Linux server (after a memory upgrade to 1Gb). My laptop will be running at SuSe 9.0. My main desktop will get SuSe 9.1 (upon release) as main OS. My second desktop will be running Xandros.... and about the other PC's I don't care :).
@mace1337: that's a nice thing to say
