Figured I would write a short little history on my Linux distribution path. From 1998-2000 I remember using all those distributions, but I couldn’t tell you in what order they were. I was switching distributions a lot then, as I couldn’t find anything I was happy with. Around 2001-2002 I did a SourceMage install, and only used it for a month or two before doing an LFS system which I stayed with the rest of the time until I found Gentoo.
I should specify that this is my desktop path, for servers I mainly use either Debian or CentOS as they are more suited for server environments than most of the ‘bleeding-edge’ distributions I like for my desktop.
