My main computer these days were an Amiga 500
and the main source of Free Software the Fred Fish disks.
There were Matt Dillons editor DME and various small
tools, hack, a vi clone (which I did't like), terminal software and so on. I 
don't remember precisely in which year gnuplot was included first, but it was 
on there as well. (gnuplot is not related to GNU, but Free Software.)

Matt later wrote his own compiler DICE. My understanding of Free Software 
concepts was not very explicit, this changed in the early nineties.
