CD-ROM Software Library

This is a wide and variant collection of CD-ROM based software, that is, software that came on a CD-ROM for installation on computers, or played in consoles. Ranging from applications and games to gatherings of public-domain software or clip art, the heyday of the CD-ROM is roughly 1989 to 2001. In all cases, the capacity of the CD-ROM stayed steady at 640-700mb a side, although some used tricks to claim they had more (due to compression, or adding up both sides of two-sided CD-ROMs).

Most are in .ISO format, which can be read as if it were a plastic CD-ROM by most operating systems. They can also be burned onto read-write CD-ROMs.

In the early 1990s, the service provider America On-Line (AOL) initiated a new "carpet-bombing" approach to acquiring new members, sending free CD-ROMs throughout the USA offering trial access to the service. This approach grew AOL from 200,000 accounts to over 22 million. Along the way, millions of CD-ROMs were produced for AOL, at one point representing 50% of all CDs being manufactured worldwide. As a result, millions of CDs landed in the world and went to all sorts of locations,...

Unlike SimPark, the game is divided into three different zones, the nature park, the tourist grounds and the African village. The ultimate aim is for...

I was looking at my Oregon Trail disc, wondering which version it is, and I found out that it is version 1.0! I thought it was version 3.1 or something, but no, the very first 1.0. This is the 1993 release of the game. This is the third version 1.0 disc I uploaded here. First it was Sammy's Science House, then Math Blaster Ages 9-12, and now it's The Oregon Trail.
