No abacus but I worked after school for a major paper manufacturing company in the accounts receivable department. I used a Comptometer. This thing was like an abacus 2.0. I had to run a balance tape of sales transactions for the previous day. Some would be just a piece of paper with some hen-scratching. The Comptometer is like an adding machine but there was a key (1-9) for each position up to 999,999,999.99 and a pull handle. I worked from 2pm-5pm M-F and the tape would be about 30-40 feet long. Man, I hated that job but it paid many expenses and I got a referral after graduating. My first job out of school was a programmer with a top local CPA firm.

I can't even remember all the OSs I've used. Pick any mainframe OS in use from about 1972 to 1995 and any micro/mini/PC OS from about 1976 to present and I've used it.

Here's what I currently have in Virtual-Box. There are others on their own machines, and
others still that aren't installed anywhere at present.

As I said, I'm a bit of an OS nut/collector..

Well, I guess the first computer I ever used was my brain (plus fingers and toes ).

As far as O.S.'s go this is as close as I can get: 98, then 95, Millenium, xp, Fedora, Vista, Red Hat, 7, Zorin. You can throw 8 in there after 7 and before Zorin if you like, I tried the Beta, I guess it was and it hasn't been on my machine since.

I forgot to add IBM OS/2 to my list. It was comparable to Windows 3 but was a better version that IBM developed during the period they were at "war" with Microsoft. We had it at work and had it installed on IBM PS/2's (I had racks of the PS/2's for Token Ring "Bridges") and had it an a 486 CPU machine for IBM's Lan Network Manager.

OS/2 was originally a Joint development project of Microsoft and IBM, until MS pulled out and IBM carried on alone, A version is still available although IBM stopped support many years ago

OS/2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We used it as it had a full protected 16 bit mode, the only easily available OS to do so at the time and It ran certain industrial applications very well
