Just wanted to briefly introduce myself. My name is Steve though online I go by "uberamd".
I've been using Linux since the mid 1990's. I want to say my first forray into Linux was when I was about 9 years old (~1998), I installed Red Hat Linux on my Packard Bell desktop only to discover that the xserver wouldn't start! Oh boy, troubleshooting X settings at the age of 9 with nothing but a Linux for Dummies book was quite the task. Eventually, after getting all of my monitor refresh, resolution, video, etc. settings right I was presented with a lovely GUI. It's amazing how closely the DE Red Hat used resembled Windows. It basically had a "start menu", but with the Red Hat logo on it.
I did a bunch of distro hopping in the 90's: Caldera, Red Hat, Slackware, Debian, SuSE, and who knows what else. I dabbled in FreeBSD in the early 2000s and used a lot of Ubuntu (until Unity came out), Red Hat, Fedora, and OpenSuSE.
At work dabble in Linux Server admin, VMware clusters, and development. I use OS X as my primary work OS because it has a nice blend of development applications, UNIX support, and nice looking hardware. I can't wait until #! works natively on my Retina MBP.
At home I've got a desktop running Windows for purely gaming purposes and Linux Mint XFCE for getting stuff done. #! runs on my Lenovo T60 and it runs very very well on it. I really love using #! because of its simple interface and Debian core. Getting a vanilla Debian install to look and work as good as #! is something I'm too lazy to do, so I'm glad you fine folks took care of the leg work for me
