    Windows 11 Prerelease

    Uh it was just today I remember of being a member of sevenforums and logged in.

    Back in the day my first time with dekstop. It was an XT machine with PC DOS having 5.25 diskette drive. Insert boot diskette to boot up, and insert another to run any program.

    It was fun. I later spent much time learning dBase and clipper programming.

    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    DOS 3.3 was the first DOS I purchased -- from a computer store selling counterfeit material. Since then, I have purchased TrueBlue Windows which includes a TrueBlue DOS. I have seen GWBasic/DOS, DR DOS 2.x, Windows 3.0 - here and there way back when. Long long ago, at a school, I saw a Tandy/RadioShack TRS-80[?] cassette-driven.

    Windows 7 Professional X64 Service Pack 1

    Even going back further than I earlier posted, worked on a 64 bit, 3 rack, individual transistor, missile controller with several hundred blinking light bulbs in the front. Could not get it sorted out in my head that it was a "-" voltage supply with "+" ground.

    Windows 8.1 Industry Pro x64

    My Dad had a big bulky laptop. I don't know what it was or what it had on it. All I did on it was play a few games. My first computer was a Windows 95 desktop. I inherited it. The first one I purchased was one I built and put XP on it.

    The first programming language I was taught at Uni was Fortran. We ran our programs as an overnight batch job on an ICL 1900, submitting our jobs as a pack of punched cards. Great fun was had by all should someone drop their stack of cards and have to sort them again

    Windows XP was the first OS I had used... I feel so young when reading other people's messages in this thread .
