Linux & Slackware versions

They used to have 5x5 feet of self space right by the register
completely devoted to Linux.  I think that when people stopped
wanting the March 1995 Infomagic CD, they thought "People no
longer want Linux".  MicroCenter doesn't realize how bad it is
to keep old Linux inventory.  Perhaps BCS should send them a
note to explain?

The RedHat they have doesn't have a version number or date.
Does that mean it is the original?  They need version 3,
but not much because that may be obsolete soon.

I'd like to see the official RedHat and the 6 CD Infomagic.
