{{Tip|[[Support Funtoo]] and help us grow! '''Donate $15 per month and get a free SSD-based [[Funtoo Hosting|Funtoo Virtual Container]].'''}}
my first experience of open-source was early 2004 when I checked out blender (I had used it before in 2001, before it was open-source). I was using it in windows but irc chatter was quite abuzz with linux, so I checked it out.
+
</includeonly>
 
+
I started with Fedora Core 2, and about 2 weeks later started with gentoo. The first install was handled by two irc users over ssh, which was a first for all of us.
+
 
+
around August 2004, I helped out with a little known binary distro called h3knix until 2005 (h3knix and arcane linux were merged in late 2005, died shortly afterwards).
+
 
+
resigned back to windows in 2005.
+
 
+
the next few years are a bit fuzzy.
+
 
+
in 2008, I got an Asus EeePC 901 (Linux ver.). Within a few days I formatted Xandros and installed Arch.
+
 
+
A few months later, it was formatted again for Funtoo.
