Slackware 1.1.2 on a 386


Today I ran across this video.

The installer looks amazingly familiar!

Absolutely fascinating! I came to Slackware with 12.0 so it was very interesting to see what has changed and not changed since the 90s. The look of the installer has not changed at all

I haven't had a chance to watch the full video yet, but I know the Slackware installer is the same now as when I first used it 15 years ago.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

There are many sufficient changes under the hood of setup but look & feel is the same ;-)

haha. That gave me flash backs to my AMD 486DX100 system back around 1993/94. I even dual booted MSDOS/Win 3.1 and Slackware. Wooo!

For even more retro goodness, fire up a qemu VM with Slackware 1.01 !

Slackware 1.1.2 on a 386

Haha! That's cool. I had the exact same sound card.

Apart from the network card, this is the very same hardware I first installed that Slackware 3.0 CD back in 96 or so... Typical Brazilian delay on tech stuff. I remember to spend days to make X properly recognize that trident shit! Boy, I miss that!

Nice video! Thanks for sharing!
