    I don't know, it's possible. Before installing Linux the first time I don't like software development, it looked horrible! Then I installed Linux and all that changed.

    At that time my father was using Windows. After a couple months I convinced him to leave the dark side. My father never tried to convince me to develop software, but I think the fact of having an old computer in my house dedicated to trying things was good.

    Started programming at 3 years old, that's damned young. Well better now than never.

    Err, not really.
    "At what age did you start using computers?
    -When I was 3 years old. Obviously I don't remember it, but my parents do.
    At what age did you start programming?
    -I started programming HTML when I was 11 years old."


    By that account I was using computers at a very young age also.
    Playing Pong on a black&white TV that is, but still. Damn, I was a genius at it.
    Never written a distro though...;)
