I used my mothers computers previously, all using winxp. At 20 i bought my first computer, i don't know why, but i got an apply computer, i soon installed win7 on it but then got interested in Gnu/Linux and finally committed to trying. My os histery from that point went like this.
Mandriva, Ubuntu, Opensuse, Back to Osx, Ubuntu, back to Osx. Ubuntu, Slackware, Debian, Opensuse, Slackware, Frugalware, Opensuse.
I still like Slackware very much and continue to hold a partition with Slack.
Opensuse is my distro of choice; why?
A few reasons, the main reasons being rpm and zypper. I don't think i will go back to a deb distro. My reasons do not limit me to opensuse, but i've been very impressed with the stability opensuse accomplishes. I have not gone through a upgrade procedure yet, so hopefully i won't be disappointed.
