My first unix was MiNT on an Atari TT030. Once I ended up with commodity
PC hardware, I migrated to Debian and OpenBSD.  I've seen great things in
each one, but ended up focusing on Debian as the lesser of all evil.

However, I've never been totally satisfied with Debian, largely because
some package maintainers are needlessly agressive and stubborn individuals
who refuse to acknowledge the common good of end-users, instead insisting
on producing packages that exclusively catter to their own selfish needs.
