Yeah, something to run would be great. Any kind of a web browser would be cool, but probably not of any real use today.

As a sidenote, there is a short clip about OpenLook on YouTube: [ Show youtube player ]. There is another 1985 episode of CC about UNIX as well, these are very interesting to watch, as are all of the CC episodes.

That's all it takes... you have to be in the dir the archive is in of course.
Ok, thanks. I supposed it could be something pretty easy. Hopefully somebody could make a one-off package with an install script that would install X11R5 and then do the fixes to paths and .xinitrc defaults so it would then work without further ado.

Now the next big mystery would be the scrambled keyboard layout in X...
