I briefly used the SLS distribution before switching to Slackware. On a 2400 baud modem it took a LONG time to download all the floppy disk images. And I had to tie up my family's landline every time I wanted to go online.
At first I didn't know what I was going to do with Linux. I remember seeing coloured
ls for the first time and thinking "so the directories are blue...what now?".
Connected to the Internet it was essentially still just a dumb terminal.
