APPRECIATION from an old DOS amateur

Thank you so much for putting your God given gifts so generously to a truly great human endeavour.. From my experience people generally find at some point they have to stand up against one or more of the big three 'isms' of our time: Naturalism, Secularism and Commercialism..

Naturalism dominates science and education to the point of materialist reductionism, Secularism dominates social behaviour to the point of extreme political correctness and Commercialism dominates trade to the point of people becoming a commodity to be owned instead of a customer to be served..

They all have their place and are valid to a degree.. its the 'degree' which is the problem! When they start to dominate and set the agenda for everyone.. that's when we all need people like you to help us get on our feet and move to a better place..

Linux us a better place.. Thanks

Feedback and comments are welcome.

Thank you very much for the effort seen watching this video. I used to be an Electronics professor and still keep CD of RH
1995 distro. Since today I make my 69 birthday it sounds to me like a special gift. No more to say but thanks....

Talking Noice

Hello Jeremy and other viewers,

Really interesting video, it goes fast, but so does Linux : I have an old, small, i386 based, single core Pentium D PC on which I have implemented Lubuntu (light Ubuntu) 16.04.3, and it runs like hell !

And another thing : Windows really sucks : I implemented an old WiFi card on a friend's 32-bit Windows 7 "Ultimate" PC, and I really didn't understand why they (Windows) make everything so "unfindable" and complicated, with all these possibilities of help and so on . This Dual core PC now still runs that Windows, it was a real nightmare to get it to work (finding the correct driver software), but I am glad that I am back at my "old" little PC running my (a little outdated but still supported Long Time Service) Lubuntu version of Linux .

But I am taking in too much space now : Job WELL DONE Jeremy !!!

Henk Vanneste,

I'm a retired Navy Chief(DPC) data processor. I just saw your 5min video of Linux History! OUTSTANDING shipmate!!! Outstanding!

Thanks for the rehash of Items from my past. I started out on IBM mainframe at USL (lafayette, la.) in 1977. 2 years later i was in the Navy.
Would tell you a few interesting things from my Navy career but most of the time I had a TOP SECRET clearence and don't talk about it.

Thanks again, and thanks for

Have you watched the 25 years of Linux in 5 minutes lightning talk from All Things Open yet? If not, visit to watch it now.
Received the above in an email......

So now I have.

Been watching/reading about Linux since 1994, (my first computer course - DOS 2.2), but didn't really get around to using it until 1999, when I finally got my first adequate computer that could run it, been using it ever since as my primary OS, (I occasionally run BSD too).

Nice to put a face to you Jeremy, & thanks for everything you do, especially running LQ.

My first Linux install was DOSLINUX (a slack derivative that was booted into straight from DOS into a loop device), I think in 1995. Starting installing it straight to a second HDD not long after. I am fairly familiar with the history, but this talk covers a lot of the milestones in a very short period of time. Thanks! (Just saw this from an email i get from the site)

I wonder if there is a similar timeline for Unix-type OSes in general...
