I was looking for a previous version of Magento CE 1.9.1, but there is only Magento CE > 2.0 on the official website. There're 95% Magento websites still on the older version.

Why are the previous versions removed from the official website?

    because Magento is awful

    if you're right at the start of a project and have the choice not to use magento back away now, this is just the tip of the magento iceberg that will drive you mad

You can find every release starting with 1.1.1 in this unofficial repo: https://github.com/OpenMage/magento-mirror/tags


You can find the 1.x versions (down to the first one 1.0.0) on the official website https://magento.com/tech-resources/download in the Release Archive tab.


Magento won't remove its previous version from its website, it just segregates into in Download and Release archive section.
