Back in the Stone Age

| software | foss | retro |

I am currently writing this post using Lynx in my Mac/Darwin Shell So apparently, this is what the internet used to look like. It is pretty neat to use this text based web browser, I have tried to fiddle around with stuff like this in Linux in the past, but it simply did not work too well for me. Even though this is primitive technology, and the internet as we know it was not even around when this text based world was the norm, it is cool to take a little flashback into time and see how much computers have evolved over the years.

I look over to my right and I see the beautiful Aqua desktop that has made Mac famous, then I look back to this terminal and I stand in awe of how far we have come.

I am not quite sure how to add a picture, but I will include a snapshot of the desktop (once I get back into Safari :) ).

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
