Feb 2002 I purchased my first pc with ME installed, nothing but problems, switched to XP and things got better. I remember back in 2006 I bought this Linux disk off of Ebay, couldn't for the life of me get it to work, knew nothing about it or Linux. I still have that disk but never tried to install it again. About 2010 I started messing around with Ubuntu before Unity, not bad but really still didn't understand it. I was still using Windows XP at this time while learning about grub and dual n triple booting systems. My first triple boot had WinXP, Ubuntu and Mint, also tried WinXP with Win7 and Ubuntu. All kinds of problems with wireless internet, remember diswrapper, lol? Then I found an Asus usb wireless dongle that worked in Linux, things were looking up. Tried several Ubuntu releases, Mint Cinnamon and Mate, along with a couple others. I don't remember when Unity hit but I couldn't stand it, installed Cairo dock, like this much better, than I found Kubuntu and now I use Kubuntu 14.04, love it. I have 2 gaming desktops, both are dual boot Win10 and Kubuntu 14.04, my bedroom laptop has Kubuntu and Win10 and I rarely see Win10, my office laptop is just Kubuntu 14.04. To date I cannot remember all the distros I have tried, but I have tried Zorin, Linux Lite, Pear and others. I have not tried Suse, Mandriva, Redhat, Debian based but not Debian or Arch. Except for gaming, I use Linux daily now.
