i was a strong Linux From Scratch user since years.
My small city didn't have ADSL until now. ADSL came here with the Wireless technology.
OK, I've a low 256kb but it's better than a 56k, don't you think so? Then i started getting gentoo and compiling everything, and now I've got a complete Gnome desktop with all network working as well.
Yes, my first ADSL, my first distro!
