Who is this?

You are done. The game is up, so you might as well reveal who you are.

^ Careful, I was granted a red dot for pretty much the same type of statement.

Sounds to me like OP is misremembering dates, and remembering Xenix as Linux. I was using Xenix in 1986-1990, and didn't try Linux until 1999 from Redhat 5.1. I was very turned off by Gnome, but gave Linux another go with KDE in Mandrake 7.0. I never quit KDE3 since KDE4 was loosed. KDE3 remains my primary DE.

ALT Linux started out based on Mandrake and you can still see it though it has changed a lot.

Same with PCLinuxOS, this still uses tools from Mandrake. (ALT is more up to date and technically superior of these 2, tried Pclinuxos once, it crashed after some time.)

OT:
I done a research on that guy TBotNik: his delirium on Quadrant and Super X-Windows I think depends on some psychological problem derived from war, as he was in Korea https://www.army.mil/article/242348/..._south_veteran
Is quite old, so can also be dementia https://www.facebook.com/TBotNik
Quite sad

I was using Linux in Philips in Nürnberg Germany in the 80's maybe the 70's
Doubt it was the Torvalds kernel as he was born in December, 1969.
