My first time was Mepis 6. Windows was all I knew. We had purchased a computer from a acquaintance who turned out to be a shyster and had put pirated software on the system. We were unaware of this and didn't find out for a few years. The system was slowing down and I ran C cleaner on the system. It removed whatever bypass he had put on the system and I started getting pop ups from Windows. Apparently he had done this to several others and they too started having issues. Not feeling like buying something I figured we thought we had, I started looking for alternatives.
Found Mepis and had a heck of a time learning a new system but, I am so glad I stuck it out and that Warren and the folks on here were so patient. I have played with a coupe other distros (Puppy, DSL and Mint) but this distro just fits.
I remember the 1st computer we had was an old 8088 (IBM or Intel)? Had an 80 MB hard drive and everything was DOS.
