Re: my first distro
I'm pretty sure my "first time" involved a Computer Shopper CD, but maybe it was downloaded. I know I had Internet access 25yrs ago. It probably wasn't anything Linux-y I was downloading at the time, but I'll pretend it was to keep on-topic.
Huge download, pay per minute Internet access (pre-0800), was going at least 12hrs then dropped. The phone then rang saying my aunty had been trying to call but the line had been engaged so she thought there was a fault. She'd rang 100 for the operator (are those guys still around?) who must've done some test on the line causing the drop, then rang through.
A costly session with zero at the end of it. I'm still bitter now.
