I still have my original CDs of ALT Linux Junior 2.2 and Compact 2.3.  Every so often I will boot them up and go through the software included on the discs.  I find it interesting to see some of the design elements that were truly innovative for back then that many seem to take for granted today.  There are many design elements of ALT that I still find unique and can appreciate today.

I do enjoy travelling back in time to see how far things have developed... and kind of miss those good ol' days in many ways.
