I found it on when I was looking for a linux distro to start with. It looked pretty easy to use and didnt look like it needed as much in system requirements as other distros, but still offered a decent number of features. I was amazed when I first started, which was in 0.7.2, because a day or two afterwards, a new version was released.

I found it through the Knoppix page.  I was attracted to the small size (not something you hear every day) and I thought I'd give it a chance.  I've been pleased with it ever since.

I found it under the chair leg.

I was sitting on the chair and wondering why it was rocking and wouldn't sit correctly. I looked under the legs and found this funny little CD under a leg. Put it in the computer, and the rest is history . o O ( or perhaps future, from the perspective of the story? )

Seriously, I have *no* idea where I found it.

I think I first saw it at Freshmeat, but I'm not totally sure. Seems like it was version 0.5.3.
