I enjoyed this one from the wayback machine.


If you want some more videos in that vein, here are some channels I enjoy:

NCommander has a bunch of fun videos in that vein, likeThe Forgotten Secrets of the First Linux LiveCD (Yggdrasil Linux), Installing Debian Linux 2.1 From 1999 Was A Painful Experience ..., THINGS THAT SHOULDN'T EXIST: Internet Explorer for UNIX, What Does It Take To Run DOOM On A $10,000 IBM RS/6000 From 2001?, or The Blandest PC Experience You Could Buy In 1998 For $7,000 ... // Exploring the SunPCI. (To be perfectly honest, as someone who doesn't normally engage in schadenfreude, I quite enjoy seeing how much some of these products make him suffer.)

Michael MJD also has some fun ones, like A Look at Linux from 20 Years Ago - OpenLinux Installation & Overview, Installing the First Version of Ubuntu on the $5 Windows 98 PC, or SoftRAM - The Story of the Incredible RAM Doubling Scam (A Retrospective).

...and though he's usually more of a macintosh guy (eg. weird macintosh hardware, Rhapsody OS on a Thinkpad, Linux on a trashcan mac pro, etc.), Action Retro has videos like Installing Linux like it's 1998 and Lindows, the weird Walmart Linux from 2002!.
