First real OS I used was VAX/VMS, late 90's when studying. Those days we learned coding using languages most of todays coders have never seen like Fortran and Cobol.

A bit later CP/M. Since 1983 various DOS versions parallel with different AmigaOS versions, then each and every Windows version. Most Linux distros although I only feel familiar today with Novell SUSE. Solaris UNIX is also something I know quite well.

MacOSX sucks!

1986-1996 - IBM VM and MVS on IBM mainframes

I'm sure there's others I've forgotten. I've been a programmer/software engineer for almost 30 years so had to use/learn many OSes.
