At some point in the first half of 1993, I was introduced, via my friend John White, to Michael O'Reilly, a CS student at UWA who would go on to co-found iiNet (Australia's second largest ISP).

Michael told John and I that we should try Linux, a Unix-like operating system we could run on our PCs.

(Yes, yes, I understand Linux is just a kernel, not the operating system, but I'm pretty sure we called GNU/Linux just "Linux" then and I'm pretty sure we mispronounced it "Lie-nucks")
