I guess in the 80's they weren't so concerned about it as nowadays. 😀

From the Agilent Internet Advisor J2300D. I've got an earlier HP branded J2300C on the way, I'll upload those wallpapers when it arrives too.

This thread is pure gold, thanks everyone involved in sharing.

I have a bunch of wallpapers I downloaded back in the year 2000 or so, that I can share if anyone wants, but they are not about the hardware, just art by people who were really into making wallpapers .

They look great for finishing that Y2K look 😉

You mean to tell me they were 100% okay with nudity back then? I thought it was the other way around, that there is more nudity today than back then.

But I was born in 1995, I minus well be a 7 year old. 😊 😊

remember this - called CDE, was working on such thing in AT&T 😁 looong time ago...

CDE, luxury! When I was working for SUN itself we had to contend with openwin and the command line. The stuff we were working with struggled even with that!

It was actually pretty easy.
An IT team of about 10-15 people would administer about 5 Sun campuses and thousands of workstations and servers.
Sun had their own home grown Ticket system and users would submit a ticket to have there computer problems fixed.
Administering Sun computers remotely with Xhost and telnet.
Remote installations with Jumpstart.
All the user accounts where on a server. So they just needed to be mounted.
Nothing was kept locally on the the computers. Everything was on there home directories on a server.
CDE and Sun Solaris 2.5 and 2.6
Personally I prefer Openwin and virtual desktop manager.
Sun had a program for IT department called “Sun on Sun”
Where Sun was going to get off MS-Windows computers and have all of Sun Microsystems on Sun Solaris 2.6.
It was easy. Jump starting hundreds of computers over night with a perl script wrapper.

That’s why I got into Sun computer because administering them was so easy.
HP-9000 computers are the same way.
I love UNIX. It’s so easy once you get the hang of it.
This is also why I got into Apple OSX computers because they basically run UNIX.
I use to like to watch TV with SunTV app on my free time.
I was NOT a SUN employee. Just Sun Microsystems enthusiast and UNIX and HPUX and Sun Solaris certification program student.

Ahh, but that era of Silicon Valley is long gone. ( 1980’s thru 1990’s ).
Today it’s all Apple, Google, Oracle, Facebook, and Amazon.

Thank you all for the tips. I'll keep that all in mind when I release them. In the meantime, I created a couple of variations of the same wallpaper using the new logo (minus the Windows flag. Credit belongs to someone else).

is there a higher res version of these/this?

I was born in 1974, and I remember on TV the "Fa" showergel advertisements with topless ladies walking on a beach or a swimmingpool. It was very common, only later everything got prudish to a hilarious extent.

I prefer old cool ads much more than today's craps.
