In my case, it was Linux, where a friend of mine presented to me and he convinced me to uninstall my Windows and install Linux. Since then, I've been using Linux. For the first 6 years, I was acting on a user level and after that, I started to work as a Linux Analyst.

Linux, specifically Mandrake. We were mostly a Windows shop but I was mates with the sysadmin who did everything on Linux, and he got me set up with Mandrake in a VM on my Windows machine. I soon switched over to Linux at home and by the time I joined RH in 2006 I knew my around pretty well.
