Historical screenshots

I'm reviving this thread from crunchbang forums.
Today I found this which I find pretty awesome.

So, post your screenshots if they are from before 2010!
or others' screenshots if they are at least 10 years old!

Yeah right! they had to be a little on the large side for the effect. You can tell a lot of thought and time was put into it.
CDE is some fun nostalgia, I believe it took my machine many hours to build the sucker on slack.

Yeah, good eye. It was on an thinkpad x120e.
On a side note don't ever own one of those, the damn thing literally shot sparks
