I'm German, and I was taught in English class way back when that it is either »since $TIMESTAMP« or »for $DURATION«, German grammar making no difference between the two. So, according to this theory, »I have been a Linux user since 1993« would be correct, as would be »I have been a Linux user for 19 years«, but »I have been a Linux user since 19 years« would be incorrect.
It should probably also be mentioned that English classes in Germany tend to emphasise British English as opposed to (US) American English. People who learn English in school in Germany and then move to the USA usually end up with a weird mixture of the two, in varying proportions.
