Walnut Creek CDROM (of Walnut Creek, California) was an early provider of freeware, shareware and free software on CD-ROMs. The company was founded in August 1991 by Bob Bruce and was one of the first commercial distributors of free software on CD-ROMs. The company produced hundreds of titles on CD-ROMs, and ran the busiest FTP site on the Internet, ftp.cdrom.com, for many years. The CD-ROMs in this collection were imaged from original Walnut Creek CDs.
