  1. This was my introduction to LInux in 1994.

    X86 32 bit architecture. Took a while to comprehend the whole thing since I was a DOS guy at the time.

    Came with Grass GIS visualization software, still available today 03/15/2022. Ran on XWindows.

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with
    the structure on your weblog. Is that this a
    paid topic or did you modify it your self? Anyway
    keep up the nice quality writing, it is uncommon to peer
    a great weblog like this one these days..
