There may have been similar posts in the past,
but I'm sure everyone has an initial linux story to be told...
Here is your chance, What was your first distro
and how or why did you try linux?To answer my own post...
My first Linux Distro was RedHat 5.1 Manhattan boxed set (floppies) around 1997 or 1998.
It took me hours to figure out the "startx" command and an additional
2 days to compile the driver needed to connect to the internet.
I jumped for joy when my new mozilla browser (recently released Netscape source code)
connected to the internet.
I have to thank a young American Indian co-worker for introducing me to Linux.
He offered me a 5.0 disk Hurricane of which I did some research before taking the plunge.
By the time I was ready, 5.1 Manhattan was released, after that there was no looking back
