10 years of Linux


Memorable dates : it must be 10 years now since I ditched Windows95, and started using Linux exclusively on my home computer. I actually installed Linux mid 96, but it took another 2 years for XFree to support my SiS video card for more than 640x480x50Hz, and for KDE to offer a nice enjoyable desktop environment.



I don't really remember when I started using it exclusively, so my 10th birthay will pass unnoticed :-(. Although I think I'm about only halfway now :-)


I switched away completely from WinNT to Linux in 2001 - so my 'birthday' is some years to come.
