Thanks for the chart. Since Slackware was 1.0 in July of 1993, I'll have to venture a guess that it was before Slackware 1.0, still in 1993.

I remember getting a copy from a fellow FidoNet BBS node who lived nearby. I had to make 60+ floppy disk images to install the thing. Once I did get it installed, it took me some time to get X11 to run. =D
