    My first was 98. Worse than treading in dog poo. Loved XP's tweakability and was dragged kicking and screaming into W7 where I will be staying no matter what. I want a W7 ISO with me in my coffin.

    It wasn't that bad as long as you won the device driver lottery. In fact, I was just the right kind of stubborn conclusion-jumper that, being unaware of how much Windows XP could be configured to look classic without the later patching tools to finish the job, I shunned what I called "Fisher-Price OS" for an extra year or two.

    Heck, just a month ago, I finished setting 98SE up on an HP t5530 thin client (after installing more storage) and, aside from a couple of driver-related rough spots (one which would have never come up back in the day because it has to do with net-mounting DAEMON Tools virtual CDs to lean on another machine with 2000 times as much space and much snappier I/O), it's as pleasant as my rose-colored memory of it. (And that thing was never meant to run Windows 98. It just happens to be built out of parts that were just old enough to have drivers for it.)

    Now Windows 3.1... that was fragile.

    Anyway, I've been around computers since I was a baby, so I can't be 100% certain, but I believe my first OS was MS-DOS 3.22 on an IBM PC XT. If not, then MS-DOS 4.01... but don't ask me to use edlin. I forgot how long ago.
