How the websites of popular Linux distros looked in the past

Today, when I checked the archives of the websites of the Linux distros, I was really surprised to see how different these sites looked back then. Here are the screenshots of the websites of some popular Linux distros when everything just started.

Ubuntu.com

In 2004, the main color theme of Ubuntu.com was somewhat red, not orange like what we see today. They also asked for donation back in 2004 and even had an affiliate program with Amazon to sell books.


Archlinux.org

The official website of Arch Linux in 2002 looked like CrunchBang's site nowadays. The main color was black, the text was white. Perhaps it was somehow related to the fact that a typical Arch user always prefers dark themes.



 Crunchbang.org

When Arch Linux's site in 2002 looked like CrunchBang's site in 2012, Crunchbang.org in 2007 was totally different. It was just a personal blog. And the theme was the opposite of how it looks today:


Linuxmint.com

Back in 2007, LinuxMint.com looked nothing special. The theme was still pale and gray instead of green like today. The logo looked really funny then:


Debian.org

This is the one that has changed the less through time. Just the same style and theme:



Thats just several screenshots of the websites of some distros back in the old days. If you want to check how other sites looked in the past, you can use archive.org. This will help you understand how much the internet has changed through time.
