those are really cool.
i recently did some screenshot research into that same era, because i noticed that there's an increase in, well, everything, in 2001/2 (also this forum?).

strangely, wherever i looked, they all seem to start cropping up around 2001... why then? what happened in the linux world in 2001?

Hey, this is really old, but I actually have found screenshots from 2001-2007 galore. It feels kind of nostalgic, you know :jawa:

Even though I didn't use Linux back then. And computers. Kind of deja vu, though I know that it never was.

Lots of things, it was a very fast time. But the around 2000/2001 fortune 500 companies started investing into Linux, so many people started taking it seriously.

Before 2000, I remember when I told people at work I use Linux, I would looks like "that's nice" to 'what a crackpot". Sometime around 2001 these same people would start asking me how to set it up. Note, me and the workers were developers.

^ i was thinking about that question of mine; i think it also had to do with technology, maybe some sort of threshold was reached and hardware development started going downhill really fast, the way we're used to now... laptops started being a real option and full alternative to desktops ... i don't know, i'm just rambling.

unfortunately crunchbang forums seems to be dissolving, and the shots cannot be seen anymore...

this: https://store.kde.org/browse/page/1646/ord/latest/ still works though :D

Here is mine from 2002, vtwm on Slackware. At the time did AIX devl and used Slackware for a development system since the AIX devl system I was linked to was way overloaded. That was sent in for a Linux screen print contest which since disappeared from the net.
