At least there aren't a buttload of whiners who cry and ramble on about their age and just simply state it. Makes me sick when people for the dumbest reasons, won't state their age. Frigin' society.
Anyway, my mom's been using Slackware (because I forced it onto her system by telling her I am stopping any assistance with that M$ crapware, muahaha!) for two or three years now, as have I (though I've been using linux since 2000). I'm 51 and she's 72.
51. I started on a university mainframe, Fortran, on punch-cards. My first job was programming assembler on NCR mainframe (a small one) still using punch-cards. First computer was a Sinclair ZX81, followed by a Commodore 64, and then a few years later by various IBM-compatible pieces of junk - sheez - what a backwards step. I had a colour computer in 1983, and a black-and-white one in 1990.
