Published at LXer:

A unique trait of open source is that it's never truly EOL (End of Life). The disc images mostly remain online, and their licenses don't expire, so going back and installing an old version of Linux in a virtual machine and getting a precise picture of what progress Linux has made over the years is relatively simple.We begin our journey with Slackware 1.01, posted to the comp.os.linux.announce newsgroup well over 20 years more
