I had a 81 R65, what a sweet ride. Take a corner or two and think of me.

Well :p! A lot of things are older than me. In fact, I own a few things that are older than me:

- A copy of Young Guns from the '80s (my dad gave it to me)
- My 'gaming chair' which is just an old antiquated red padded chair
- I have a small fan sitting on my computer desk that I use to keep cool. The entire thing is made of metal, blades included.
- An old Polaroid camera.
- A couple rusted nails from the local rail road track.
- I'm pretty sure my BB gun is older than me, by far.

That's about all I can think of at the moment. So, yeah I'm not surprised that you're motor vehicles are older than me. Chances are, the majority of Mepis users here at the forums are older than me too. I find it hard to imagine many other people my age giving a crap about a computer. Most of my peers seem to dislike computers due to the frustration of making one work properly. For me, however, I enjoy messing around with my computer as long as I don't break the stinking thing.

Lol! Go ahead, make me feel all the younger. I really don't mind. :p

But yeah, that's probably because I'm one of the younger Linux users around here. :) IDK, if I am the youngest however. That's debatable.

If memory serves we had someone that claimed 12 or 13.

My kids "use" Mepis (linux), and have done so for the last 4 years. The youngest is three (so it's all he's ever known)....but that "use" is confined generally to flash games on-line!

Well, eventually they'll be using a word processor for school. Hopefully Linux can still give them what they need then. I know it does for me. :)
