Started feeling uncomfortable with Windows around 1996. Mostly because I couldn't change its looks. I had seen #Linux (Slackware) at a friends house and 1998 I bought a Linux book that had an accompanying #RedHat diskette+CD. I liked the philosophy and joined it technically.
#Microsoft was the bad guy. They used their own standards e.t.c.. I forced myself of that train.
