    Windows 7 Professional x64 / Windows XP Professional x86 / Linux Manjaro

    Not counting the few times we got to use laptops with some weird regional Linux distro on them, my first OS was Windows XP Home, 32 bit.

    I recall my sister saying she would've installed Vista or 7 on my new laptop, but she thought XP Home would be more appropriate for a child. And she was probably right, Windows XP had the perfect interface for a child just getting to use computers for the first time, but I must say, I always wanted to get Windows 7!

    But back then I didn't have any way to backup my files, nor was I brave enough to install an OS on my real computer (I had only ever done it on VM's with Windows 98 so far, and I probably had no idea what I was doing anyways!)
    Nowadays I do use Windows 7, mainly, but I also have a Windows XP installation just for old times' sake :P

    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

    My first computer was a Sinclair ZX Spectrum+ running Sinclair BASIC and the first OS which I used was MSDOS (not sure which version) but it was on a 386 with 5 1/4 disks

    Windows 7 Pro 64-bit / Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (dual boot)

    I didn't get my very first computer until August 1997 when I was almost 52 years old.
    It was a HP Pavilion 8160 with an Intel Pentium 233 MHz processor and 32 MB(16 MB x 2) of EDO RAM and a 6.4 GB IDE hard drive and Windows 95 OSR2.
    Computers and their accessories were very expensive in those days.

    I didn't use an OS in my childhood but started using IBM VM and MVS mainframe OSes when I was in my early 30's.

    First PC OS I used was PC DOS 2.1.
