Linux What did the Linux world look like back in 2000? TuxRadar has republished a distribution round-up from Linux Format issue 1, May 2000. Many distributions such as SUSE, Mandrake and Red Hat are still around in various incarnations, but a few such as Corel and Definite have fallen by the wayside. Still, it does bring back some memories.

First time I had to install Linux was 1998. I started computer science studies and needed JAVA. My Amiga had no JAVA at this time, but it had a PowerPC-card in it and for this card Linux was available. I'll never forget the splash screen with a Tux holding a beer glas. So my first JAVA programs I wrote on this computer.
