Default What Order Have You Used Linux Distros In?

An interesting question is posed over at Network World today, by "Linux Tycoon" and funnyman Bryan Lunduke. Simply put, is there such thing as a "best" distro order for learning and becoming absorbed into Linux? Or rather, does the first distro you use kind of determine where you eventually end up? I'd imagine this could be the case for those who like to experiment, but I am not so sure anyone who discovers Linux via Ubuntu would be that quick to leave it. Though, I could be wrong.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

You threw me in the deep end with Gentoo! Then it was pretty much over after that. I reiterate why I haven't moved to Linux " If I can't play my games, I'm not going to use it." When they catch up to that, then count me in!
