I remember ftp’ing the disks over many nights. Slackware & SLS were two early distros. Then Red Hat came along. We could go to the computer store and buy it on compact disks. Then we moved to deb based distros as RH became corporate. Today I’m typing this on a Android Linux tablet. We also just looked back at 25 years of the WWW. Without Linux machines running the servers, we likely would have a very different internet today.
