Default Oldies..come here, let's nostalgia ;)

I'm a little bit young in FreeBSD world, but i want to know why, how, and when did you first know and using Computer?

Ok, let's start nostalging about everything..

I forgot when the exact year. about 14 years ago, I played my first game on my friend's computer : Prince of Persia...on DOS.. in 1997, I have my own computer, Pentium 2 if I wasn't wrong, and I played porn-games for the first time in my life in that computer...of course I didn't know that the game was embedded by virus that would make my windows 98 'freeze' after i shut the game. That day, i try to reinstall windows 98 just to have another round of porn-games... For Heaven's sake...That's the root of everything.Porn.

in 2005, I have my own computer, and start using Linux Slackware.. my friend gave it to me and said that I should try it. He said that Slackware is the most easy linux ever..first thing i know is that i need 3 days neglecting my college just to make myself success executing 'startx'. i start looking other distro's. I tried SuSE but was so slow..tried Mandriva,Fedora, but none of i like..especially Ubuntu, i just hate the log-on sound

The reason why i used Linux is simple : i need OS that immune to virus, so that i could worry-not about viruses in my flash disk and could lend my flashdisk to my friend with light-hearted and smile..The other reason, i don't want other people touching my computer. And since there's only almost 10 people out of 800 person in my Faculty running Linux, i'd be safe..

in 2007, i forced to sell my laptops for my college fee, and i start to work part-time. There. my Senior told me to try FreeBSD. My limitations make me harder to install mainstream Linux, so that i tried FreeBSD..it's been almost a year now, and i think i'll stick with it...

you know what's the best part of Unix-like Systems? virtual desktop...in one desktop you could watch porn, or play games...but in one keystroke, you could be 'Good-worker-that-never-playing-around-while-worktime'...exactly what i need

So, what's your story?
