I found Linux in 1994 - ZipSlack, then RedHat & Debian - went full time Linux in 1999.

(Still using Debian based distros today.)

I was 12 in September 1991, when the initial release of the Linux kernel took place. I was using the Atari 1040ST for gaming, and arguably in a simpler and happier place.
