    Sadly, MSDOS was my first foray into Microsoft products. I got my first 386 in 1989 I think and i'm sure it came with MSDOS 4.0.

    I didn't bother with Windows until version 3.0 came along and then I got given a copy by a friend's dad who worked in IT, such as it was at the time.

    My first computer was a Commodore. I think it had a tape drive.
    I remember those. And eventually a floppy drive that overheated every time you tried to read a 160K floppy disk (5, no less).

    Windows 2.0. Also used many versions of MS-DOS and PC-DOS as well as OS/2.

    Remember the tagline for OS/2? It launched with IBM's PS/2. The snarky tag line was "Half an operating system for half a computer".

    My first computer was a Sinclair ZX80. I had a Commodore 64, Acorn Electron, BBC Model B and Sinclair Spectrum all before I got my first PC.

    Those were the days

    Oh man, the Sinclair ZX80 was a gorgeous computer. I do have my baby here...

    But he's from before my time. I don't use him to much since it's easier to just run an 8-bit emulator on my Mac but I keep him on the shelf. One of my favorite retrogaming acquisitions.

    I think the first I used was XP, but I might've used 98 first and I just can't remember it

    Believe it or not I was an Apple guy back then! I had an Apple II! Of course I had plenty of DOS computers too, but my first version of Windows was called Windows 286 I believe and it was a predecessor to Windows 3.0 and was made for the then popular 286 computers, it was a variation of Windows 2.0 I believe.

    DOS and old Macintosh computers. Not sure what those ran because I was 7 back then. These were school computers. Most people didn't have PC's back then.

    My first PC was in 94. Windows 3.0.
    At work I remember using Windows 2.0.
    Had to look those up!!!!

    Moving to a Mac this year. Not keen on Windows 8.1 and I would prefer moving to an all Apple ecosystem.

    There was Windows 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1. I've used all of those as well as Commodore 64 and even OS/2 and of course MS-DOS.
