Around '96ish or so. A whole lotta details I could share, but. RH 5.1 was around '98. My first release of RedHat was 4.2 (Biltmore), then 5.2 (Apollo). The official program didn't happen until 2002 or so, but some of us have cards that pre-date that. My first distro was Slackware, though. My issue with RedHat was losing network on reboot after install, using the ol' generic Tulip fast ethernet cards. Always had to manipulate the interfaces file. So, I didn't give Fedora any love because I wasn't going to keep dealing with that when Debian and Slackware just worked. I still use Slackware, Debian, and Ubuntu for personal use. Unfortunately, I *have* to maintain use of Windows, too.

Oh yea, I remember the old tulip driver and the problems with it. I also remember buying the Maxtor drives that came with the free Fast IDE card which one had to compile the kernel module for. It was very worth it, at the time as it was way faster than motherboard IDE buses.

Even though I said I have never owned a Windows computer, doesn't mean I don't work with Windows. My job requires me to use Windows 10 to maintain Linux servers. Odd, I know, but true. I also once had a shop that built custom computers, 90% of which were Windows installs for gamers. UGh! Wink

Oh, you are right. Wow is my memory off. I guess it was around '98. I just looked up the Commodore Wiki and it was ~'96 when they went belly up, not '92 as I originally thought.

RedHat was the only distro I recall that was a b*tch with Tulip cards. Debian and Slackware post-install reboot was always flawless with them for me.

Gaming is what got me back into computers way back when. One of the LAN gaming events I went to years ago, ran into a guy running some of the game servers. Hello, Slackware.

Doing some of the things I do now is why I own anything running Windows. I could easily replace Windows, but. I remember a certain network that had RH5.2 PDC and BDC running an NT4 network. And there was no using Windows to maintain those servers involved. Not sure exactly what you mean there. I don't even employ Windows to maintain a mixed environment most of the time.

This is very different from region to region, but mostly those affected do not know whom to contact

the family doctor refers to the health department and does not want to treat

one should not come to the clinic either

and the health department again refers to the family doctor, etc

the health department is usually responsible and they decide whether to take a test based on the risk group

Usually they don't take a test and put prophylactically in their home quarantine for at least 14 days and call from time to time to ask how they feel
