OK a little computing history here :
Started around 1999 with my first computer a Pentium III 667 with Win98, but as soon as I got my hands on a W2K copy, started using that .
XP was the logic follow up, but round that time I tried my first non Win OS, BeOS .
Got it working and all but it was very restricted and no longer being developed but it was a eye opener, computers work perfect without Bill
My first Linux was Suse but never really liked it .
Then Ubuntu came, was enthusiastic about it but it was to buggy for my taste ( it gave me Win98 flashbacks
) and I never really liked the idea that it was "freely" distributed by a company .
So I started using Debian but until that time always had a dual boot with Win 7 alongside .
But I got into Debian and started using Win no more and for the last 5 years my comp is Win free .
When I read about Solus I decided to give it a go, like it so far but the software repository is somewhat restricted ( I really miss Gthumb)
But anyway I boot Solus more than Debian lately .
