@natecull I don't remember it that way. In the 80s and early 90s nobody was on the internet unless they were one of the very few there via the revocable benevolence of an employer or university, using their resources. Except for baby Linux in 1991, there were no FOSS OS's. Home users were mostly in the AOL walled garden, if on the internet at all. That "shining moment" was the dream of a privileged technical elite. Only a dream even for them.
