What Linux distro(s) do you use?

For personal use: Started with Slackware 4 back in college. Used Slackware up through version 10 or so. Moved to Fedora Core/Fedora before trying (and loving) Arch Linux in 2009. For work use: Kubuntu for a while, mostly because they had discs lying around at work, but also because they were still using KDE3. Then briefly Fedora, before switching to Arch. I run Arch on all my machines now.

How long have you been using Linux?

Since 1999.


Formerly a Linux/Solaris sysadmin, now a Python developer for SaltStack, Inc. First started tinkering with Linux in college, and I've run it pretty much exclusively for most of the last decade.
