August 16 1993, Ian Murdock announces Debian on comp.os.linux.development.
What a long strange trip it's been. Well, probably only 10 years for me.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Although I have been fishing in the Debian ecosystem for more than a decade - starting with Ubuntu - it's only been the last couple of years that I have actually run Debian itself.
I use it on my Thinkpad T430. Initially I ran Debian Sid but that was a bit too cutting edge for me. Now I have Debian stable.
I couldn't use vanilla out of the box Debian though. I need some non-free firmware to get the wifi working on the Thinkpad. Also, I added Google Chrome. I have some Gnome Shell Extensions too - just to make Gnome 3 a bit more palatable.
As an Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and MX-17 user it is great to run the real deal. The netinstall feature is one of the best I have ever used.
Because Debian needs some tweaking to get stuff like wifi working in many cases I still think of it as an enthusiast's distro.

I've done many things in my life where I didn't have a clue what I was doing... yet, most of the time, it worked out. ;)
