I've got junk dating back to '94 in /etc and '98 in $HOME
I think almost everyone has those default exports, organization and
host.conf from 1994 in their /etc directory. I also have hosts.allow and
hosts.deny from 1993 in /etc on my 14.2 system and that was before I
started with Slackware.
Usually I install my slackware systems from scratch and then on my home
systems copy my home directory from another machine. So those old files
in /etc are probably from a default Slackware 14.2 installation.
My oldest files in ~ are swedish.au and english.au from 1994 where Linus
Torvalds explains how to prononce Linux. However, those time stamps might
not be dates when I copied those files there. If I remember right I
started with Slackware 1995.
The oldest file in ~ which I can tell for sure was created by me is
~/.workmanrc from 1996. That file was used by a program to play music CD-
ROMs. My guess is that the file firstly was created 1995 but later
updated 1996. However, the ctime of my oldest files in ~ on my current
machine is now 2018 when that machine was installed.
