They must have shown up sometime near the middle 90's, if I remember right.
For sure not in the middle 80's. I had to crack everything myself at that time and at exorbitant prices for 16-32KB modem connections, very few would bother if a group released anything or not.
Good thing the Chinese distributors stepped in and flooded the market with software collections on CDs...

I don't think so either. Even the 'orange book' is from 88 !!
I remember paying a FORTUNE for a scsi Yamaha cd burner back in 1996. It was slow, using a caddy ... jurassic burn.
