Oi! <insert some rude/nice/amusing old person insult> I'm middle-aged.
I've played with computers since before the PC days (sending punch cards
in the post), ignored the C64 but used alternatives in the same era, had
fun with the Amiga while avoiding the hideous DOS/Windows world that I
saw at the school I worked at, got into Linux with Red Hat Linux 6 (the
first one that would actually install on my hardware), then migrated
over to Fedora when Red Hat changed the gameplan (and that did annoy a
lot of people).
I've dabbled with other Linuxes and BSD, enough to think they're much of
a muchness (similar or balanced capabilities, limits, and annoyances),
but different enough that I stuck with what I got used to.
