17 years of linux desktop captures

I know that this isn't a security post but I thought I would take a moment and post some screenshots of the Operating System that I had a passion for many years. I just wish I had my screen shots of the ACID, BASE and Sguil deployments through the years as well

Ever since I switched 100 percent to a linux desktop I would take screen shots just to track the progress of how it evolved. I had been using it since 1998 but it wasn't until 2001 that I was able go all in. In the beginning I had many hurdles, I was building out a large network for the company but they were stuck with Twinaxe cabling and 5250 emulation cards in old 486's. Once I switched the iseries as400 to tcp, then it became how to emulation 5250 which wasn't that bad.


Getting 5250 emulation working since I was an RPG400 and ILE programmer at the time
