I'd hate to think what they'd be like if we went back 10 more years and gave them DOS a blank screen except for a small flashing cursor

Or back 50 years and give them a coding sheet where they can enter the binaries. Then punch the cards.

Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 Windows 7 Pro/64

I started with a Timex Sinclair and I never did figure it out.
Then I started using Windows 98 and dial up. I thought it was great. I bought the computer from Home Shopping Center. A bunch of boxes were delivered with bunches of things that I had no idea what they were except the monitor which weighed about as much as I did. Getting everything hooked up wasn't all the bad. Installing everything took me weeks to figure out. It took me forever to understand that Windows 98 had to be installed first before all the rest of the programs.

Remember I had no books, no friends that had done it before, no internet to go to a forum for help.
All I had was a few foldouts that showed which cable/harness went where.
Once I figured out what a I.S.P was and got a modem and on line I thought I was in hog haven.
Then I upgraded to Windows XP-Pro, WOW and 4 gb of ram. Now I know for sure I want more neat sh-t.

How many young-ins would go through all that today just to have a computer and go online?

Jack - although I'm a little younger than you (I think), I actually first dabbled with computers in the early 70's (still in High school), then continued from there, through building my own ZX80 at home and then in business things such as Sinclair QL, Early PCs including a BBC Micro ( one with a add on 5" dual Floppy system Including an additional Z80 CPU). I moved onto Early 8086 systems using DOS, At this time I was not actually employed as a computer tech but just did what I could and eventually my job role changed so that I ran the IT side for the company.

One thing I do miss about the old days was the fact that there was No right way or wrong way, just a way that worked, today's kids are lucky with the hardware and software they have but they actually know little about the Art of Computing

I'm a teen about their age and I do know all of it, I'm surprised that some don't know the history.

I remember being so amazed by Windows 95. You could play Doom in a window! I was blown away by that, and a few other things, but it was such a difference from Windows 3.1.

It's what got me away from DOS pretty much forever.
