Any Linux users here?

If so, what was your first distribution & what do you currently use?

Ex-UNIX and ex-Linux here. I switched to the Mac when they based their OS on UNIX, because all I wanted was the shell and a decent environment for command line input and scripting. Every new install in Linux was an adventure in digging through config files, which taught be a lot, but was ultimately not inspiring me anymore. I started with RedHat and had SUSE for a while, too, but my first exposure was through genuine UNIX systems on campus.

No idea what the first was, nor which specifically is on my desktop currently, other than some version of Lubuntu. Tried lots of them before sticking with Lubuntu.

I was on MacOS for years. Started testing Peanut Linux around 2001, Fedora has been my main OS for a couple years
