Humor An OS Enthusiast created a page displaying the modal restart prompts from many of the top OSes/versions from the last 20 years. It brought back a flood of memories. The best part is when you click on the "ok" button. It "restarts" the web site for you. Gizmodo's instincts were to make it a game, by asking: how many can you identify?

No Linux

Well, with its countless variations and rapid changes, Linux has no "soul" to preserve...

It would be nice to have some distro included here, but which one? It is really hard to agree on an iconic Linux edition everyone remembers fondly. I don't really care about any particular distro/version that I would like to see emulated here for a touch of nostalgia...

That said, I hope it is understood that I have nothing against Linux as such...

Well, a history of KDE and GNOME restart dialogs would already be a big step in the right direction.

I always tend to think of Bluecurve as an iconic Linux theme if there was one. It was one of the first attempts at creating a more unified desktop experience in Linux.

When it comes to "iconic" I seem to think like that also about Plastik.

Or is it because this was pretty much the only really good (as opposed to ~over-shaded) looking KDE theme? Anyway, it seemed to be used often enough in more ~serious scenarios - for example on most, if not all, university KDE machines that I've seen half+ decade ago.

My most iconic moment with Linux would be Enlightenment DR13, Every single element of that DE was just full of awesome. I wish E17 would finalize.
