Yes, that's right! I started playing with TeX & Friends with Fink's 
teTeX (re-)distribution. Then I moved to Gerben Wierda's distribution, 
which took some parts from teTeX and others from TeXLive plus great 
additions by Gerben Wierda himself. My firsts real works were with gwTeX.

(Of course, that was on a Mac; nowadays I work on GNU/Linux.)

Every year, when I load the map files of my personal fonts, I can't help 
but remember how it was in the old times!

Thank you!
