And I ran it on redhat linux (not enterprise) back when fedora wasn't a distribution but just an add-on repository. Back when redhat had release codenames like "cartman". And before yum, so you had to manually track down dependencies. I DO NOT miss that!
oh and just because linux users always have to prove themselves, I was a big kde user back in college actually but that was in the kde v1-v2 days and I specifically stopped using it after the v3 changes. I've been trying it here and there since.
With all the talk about kde plasma and mobile convergence and since the latest plasma is available for freebsd (unlike gnome), I decided to try kde again. Currently testing out kde neon on an old laptop.
It'd be nice to be able to use the same desktop everywhere, including mobile and even if I switch to freebsd.
Wish me luck.
