My first Linux distribution tested live was KNOPPIX but the first distribution installed was Mandriva One 12 years ago...

First installed Arch, a few months back. I've tried Manjaro for a few days, but settled on Arco.

My 1st was Lycoris Linux https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R91ZslfB1U0 many many years ago.

Manjaro was my first Arch base.

First was Knoppix. Then WUBI, then 'buntu, Mint, etc... for a few years.

During the oughts, my main purpose was to learn how to adopt my workflow to FOSS, so I used Gimp, Scribus, Inkscape, Open Office, and Blender even though the workplace had me chained to the Windows.

First Arch was Antergos. First Arch I actually use daily is Arcolinux.

I “started” with Debian 3 back in 2002 (?)
I did not have the time to invest in making everything work (modem, mainly).
First real usage was with Linux Mint about a decade later. Lots and lots of distro hopping.
Dove into Arch a few years ago and have not looked back. Tried Antergos and Manjaro.
Good distros but I am sticking with ArcoLinux as my daily driver since I have decided to really learn the inner workings of Linux.

Now if I can just stop desktop environment hopping!
