    I started with Android FROYO 2.2.1 which was really simple to root and customize, not to mention just how easy it was to tether. I'm currently running Android Kit Kat 4.4.2 rooting and unlocking the bootloader is a little more difficult and tethering is hit or miss depending on which phone you have. I have been through every version of Android since 2.2.1 (except Honeycomb) and it's been a nice ride watching this OS grow up.

    Gingerbread 2.3.5 on my Sprint Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch. 3.0 is the only OS I hadn't seen. And yes, it has been fun watching Android grow and change.
    I am currently on 4.4.2 or 4.2.2, depending which phone I use.

    My first Android powered phone was the Nexus One running 2.1 Eclair. I remember a few short months later when 2.2 Froyo was announced and people were going nuts because you could use Adobe Flash Player and the JIT which promised speed improvements.

    I am now on a SGS3 which I just can't seem to give up. I'm running 4.4 Kitkat and the phone is still going really strong. It really does amaze me how far and mature Android has become. Kitkat is worlds apart from Eclair and I am excited to see what's next. And the fact that they are so different is what really makes me love Android over iOS.

    HTC Incredible running Gingerbread 2.3 was my first. Now a galaxy s4 running 4.3. It has been a great experience growing with each update.

    I had one of those Coby tablets, even after rooting it I still didn't like it.

    2.0.1 on my Motorola Droid. I got most updates up to 2.3.6 between it and my Droid X2. I then skipped to 4.2.2 with my S4 and I'm on some version of 4.3 now.

    The first I played around with was Android 1.0 on a relative's T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream outside the US).

    The first that was my own was 4.0.4 on my Galaxy S3, upgraded to 4.4 (Root/ROM).

    My current Android tablet is on 4.2.2.

    Personal use? Eclair on the original DROID.

    But at my old gaming job, we had Cupcake and Donut devices.

    Both of my current active devices (Moto X, Nexus 7 (2012) have Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

    This is every version of Android that I have run to date. Anyone else remember all of their different versions?

    2.2.1
    2.2.2
    2.3.4
    2.3.5
    2.3.6
    4.0.1
    4.0.3
    4.0.4
    4.1.1
    4.1.2
    4.2.1
    4.2.2
    4.3
    4.4.2

    Needless to say, rooting made up at least half of Android versions being used.

    I started with 2.0 Ecalir. However I also used 1.6 Donut. I always have the latest Android version since I only buy unlocked bootloader phones. I still feel Android 2.0 is more advance than iOS7.1.

    Started on 4.4, I then worked my way up to 4.4.2, is been a long road but I think I'm in it fit the long haul. That .2 added such a personal touch that I won't ever look at a blackberry the same.
