Yes, my first purchased copy of Linux was Caldera Open Linux 1.1 purchased from
PC World. Little did I know where they would end up! Still it got me going once
I finally had spare hardware without Windows NT or OS/2 running on it for work
to get hooked on Linux (I think I already was, I'd been reading about it on the
IBM 'forums' for a while already having found one on getting Linux running on
my IBM L40sx laptop). I shouldn't grumble too much though, OS/2 saved me from
too much reliance on Windows and made Intel hardware bearable. Being and Amiga
user Windows was such a major step down I couldn't understand how anyone could
consider it any more than a toy!
