Red Hat 7?

I first started using Linux with Red Hat in 2001. I don't recall if it was 6 or 7. I used Fedora Core after Red Hat stopped an official individual distribution. RPM hell and a lot of online correspondents using Ubuntu swayed me to Ubuntu in 2005/2006. I decided to move to Debian in July 2013 and am using Wheezy now.

Red Hat Linux 7.1 (Seawolf, mid-2001) & Slackware [8.0] was soon after (late 2001/early 2002)

First distro I tried was Lycoris after a PC User magazine had it on one of their cds. The next distro I tried, and used for a decent amount of time was ubuntu; from version 4.10 upwards.

The first distro I did was Ubuntu 9.04 running andLinux over a Windows desktop. The first that I did with a Linux desktop was Ubuntu 10.04 installed with Wubi. Since then I learned how to do a full install of Linux and I now use Slackware 14.0 on a desktop and Slackware current on a laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 on a usb hard drive.

To the five people who said Gentoo was their first distro:

Hi,

Slackware was my first and still using it for the past twenty plus years!

I do use some diagnostic & forensic Gnu/Linux but Slackware is my primary OS.

Knoppix was my first distro, then installed Fedora 3 or 4. I've tried Slackware, Ubuntu, & Peppermint also. Generally only use Slackware or a live distro.

I would like to try Free BSD, and have had to use UNIX for work.
