The latest issue of the magazine was a bit late, but the delay was worth it.
Steven Tompkins, our fellow podcast co-host came upon an unopened Zip Disk and a copy of Red Hat 5.2 at the local Salvation Army. Talk about throwbacks!
Back when it was called Central Missouri State University, I job shadowed somebody who was a web developer. I was eventually led to another part of the campus that was technologically oriented.
When I entered one room, I was told that no Microsoft products were on any of the machines. I was shown WindowMaker and GNOME if memory serves. Among the distros that was mentioned was Red Hat.
Zip Disks themselves were designed by Iomega to be used as a successor to floppy disks, but were replaced by flash storage instead. I remember every computer on that campus having a Zip drive.
My how far we’ve come!
