Sometime in the late 1990's, I saw Red Hat 5.2 for sale in a store. It was described as a complete operating system and was cheap, so I bought it. It was fun to play with and try to get some programs to work, but many of the programs and hardware that I used didn't work with it (or I couldn't find an alternative), so I kept the OS as a toy that I played with from time to time. Windows was still my primary OS. Over the years, I installed several different distros and played with them for a while, but they didn't do everything I wanted, so Windows was still my primary OS. Around 2006, my son, who knew about my history with Linux, introduced me to Ubuntu (Dapper). What a difference a few years had made! It had become much more user friendly. Linux then became my primary OS, but I kept a Windows partition for some of my programs (and games) that still didn't work with Linux. Now, I'm using Arch and have gotten all my programs, games and hardware (including my Lexmark scanner) to work with Linux. With XP reaching its end of life, it's time for me to finally say good-bye to Windows!
