Re: Historical Screenshots (oldest or older, pre-2010)

a. @ohnonot: Besides the colors and resolution, not sure what you mean with a leap, example? (I mean it's mostly about icons/windows and "custom" launchers for the last 20 years in my eyes)

b. Bunch of things went down the hill since amiga, like a lack of dedicated blitter (also running resolution per app), using accelerated graphics when it needs to be used, like text editor with a smooth scroll stop (ced on amiga) and such.

c. Also macs of the era were soft and hardware retards compared to the amiga (Unlike what the movie Jobs is trying to tell). Vim was first written for amiga as well (but don't quote me).

Re: Historical Screenshots (oldest or older, pre-2010)

Per wikipedia gnome 1.4 had released in 2001. It was still based on meta city back then but was huge because it was theme-able. Compared to KDE at the time, gnome was stylish and slick. Linux customization was really taking off. I was running Redhat 6.0 at the time with Gnome. My desktop wallpaper would have been a dark olive green background with a black stylized serpent or dragon. The gnome/metacity theme was a slightly lighter olive green to match the wallpaper. I went hunting for that wallpaper recently because it would be easy enough to modify a gtk-2 theme and rebuild that early, first customized Linux desktop. I got the wallpaper from either D-A or Digital Blasphemy. I have yet to be able to find it, however.

Some of those SS's bring back memories. I started using linux around 1998-99 ish.

Good times. What a long strange trip its been.
