I remember being very chuffed with the fact that the boot and root disks (on 3.5" floppies) were physically smaller than my copy of "Portable Unix" [0]

Then a year or two later getting Dec$Write running on a V8650 to display on the X11 server of a Linux box elsewhere on the campus instead of one of the creaking DecStations we normally used.

Now I'm sitting in front of a laptop running Ubuntu and have an Android phone in my pocket. Good times (then and now).
