Slackware Linux was also my first distro in 1994. I got my first Linux disks in 1993, but my machine had 2MB RAM, and I wasn't interested enough to look whether it was possible to get it to work. I got hooked in 1994. It must have been the first half of 1994, because I remember pretty well that Slackware Linux 2.0.0 got released. I did not have a decent net connection until 2000, so I was very happy with the TSX-11 and sunsite.unc.edu archive discs that were included with the Slack CD sets. The Infomagic CD sets were great too, nice artwork :). My ventures into BSD started in 1994 with FreeBSD 2.1.5.
I can remember the awe of seeing the first KDE Alphas. Not that I planned to run it, but I naively though I could finally promote Linux to others after the first stable KDE was released.
It has been a great ride, and time really flies.
