Download telnet? Never had to download it, it's a protocol that has been included in almost every operating system since the late 80s. Many devices still require telnet for communications and configuration. Ever had to set up a Cisco enterprise switch? Telnet.

Wasn't Telnet just an early unsecure form of SSH?

Use SSH. Telnet is an open protocol.

A really shit PC, I remember thinking I was right into the mainframe though.

Remember Net Meeting where you could take control of someone elses PC? That was also thrilling.

Was it a mac or something? Windows 3.11 maybe?

There's lots of tools to still do that today. Teamviewer, Remote Desktop, VNC, all that kind of stuff.

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered over the years in commonly used Telnet daemons.

They took the name from Maxwell's demon, an imaginary being from a thought experiment that constantly works in the background, sorting molecules.[2] Unix systems inherited this terminology. Maxwell's Demon is consistent with Greek mythology's interpretation of a daemon as a supernatural being working in the background, with no particular bias towards good or evil. However, BSD and some of its derivatives have adopted a Christian demon as their mascot rather than a Greek daemon.[citation needed] The word daemon is an alternative spelling of demon,[3] and is pronounced /ˈdiːmən/ DEE-mən. In the context of computer software, the original pronunciation /ˈdiːmən/ has drifted to /ˈdeɪmən/ DAY-mən for some speakers.[1]
