Ah darkstar, definitely brings back memories. I renamed it dorkstar. I was
about 13 :P
I remember installing Slackware from floppies. There were 7-8 of them as far
as I can remember. I was at summer camp in DCU, and I was learning C
programming on the local MUD.
I think it was actually summer 1996 for me but apparently its the same
version as you guys were using in 95!
How they let me reinstall the CS lab computers is beyond me ;)
So, happy 20th birthday Linux.
