    First OSish was what came default with the Commodore 64. My first full fledged OS was Windows 3.11. My first Linux distro was Mandrake I think 6.

    The first OS I recall using is Windows 7 (yes I’m young), and for Linux, I switched from Windows 11 to Linux Mint, which is what I use in the present day.

    Windows vista

    Was the worst

    Then xp, 7, 10

    Then I saw teachings of Prophet Stallman

    Switched to manjaro (too buggy), pop OS (good) finally a fedora user (the penguin guide me)

    First OS: I think it was Windows 98. I have then gone through XP, Vista, 7 and staying at 10 for as long as i can.

    First Linux distro: Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10 don’t remember clearly but it certainly was before GNOME 3 and in a VM. From then i have also run Fedora, Debian and most recently Linux Mint and Pop! OS in VMs as well. Maybe one day i finally set up a dual boot…

    First OS was C64’s Commodore KERNAL/BASIC 2.0 GEOS, if that even counts as an OS, the next was Amiga 500’s AmigaOS

    First Linux distro was Fedora

    DOS/Win3.1 I was pretty young. It was far back enough that it was still common to find Apple II’s in my grade-school classrooms off to the side for when we had downtime. I regret that I was just a little too young to experience the Commodore 64 craze.

    First operating system was DOS 4 or 5, I think. On big 5.25” floppy disks on an 8088. Unless we’re counting whatever was running on a commodore vic20.

    My first Linux distribution was Red hat Linux, somewhere around 1997, 1998 and I had a really tough time getting it installed.

    I also once had a trial version of os/2 warp. Which was fun but pointless.
