First distro I used was SuSE 9.1 Professional Edition. Still have the boxes+CDs+DVDs. I duel booted with Windows back then, until I got rid of it.
Next, my Linux odyssey continued with me upgrading to SuSE 9.3 (When I did 100% Linux). Then, openSuSE 10.0 ended up being released (I updated to 9.3 very late. I even started by installing 9.1 back when 9.3 was out), so I used it, and hated it. For some reason, it was sloooooooooow. So I say heck with it.
Now starts my
Basically, I downloaded tons of LiveCDs and install disks, and used each one for no more than a week
I remember trying Ubuntu Dapper Live, Fedora (Used this one for maybe two weeks I think), the newer openSuSE 10.1, and some small distros. Then, I decided to stick with Ubuntu Dapper, and happily used that up to the Gutsy period (but still running Edgy on my desktop [And in fact, I still do as of right now]).
Next, I started distro hopping and live CD hopping for my newly obtained laptop (It is about a month old now), and ended up having openSuSE 10.3 installed, and trying to get wireless working for a lonnnnnnng time, until I came here with Mint on my laptop, which found my wireless right out of the box.
And that's my 2 year long or so story from age 15 or so boxed into a few tiny paragraphs... *out of breath*
