Think back to your first run-in with a PC. What was that like?

Jag: Memorizing DOS commands. I had sticky notes all over the screen with DOS commands. My super couldn't understand why I couldn't remember the commands, but I never had to memorize anything on my Mac.
This is exactly the reason I use Macs. I never could pickup DOS. I remember back when I was a senior in high school, we had our first exposure to computers. A Wang, that was line command, and I couldn't memorize the commands. To this day I still don't know how to use DOS. When Apple released their Macintosh in 1984, I was thrilled, no more line command for me. I still don't like line command, even though it is available in OS X. To me that is not the way a computer should be.
What's your opinion of Microsoft then and now?

Jag: They sucked, and they still suck. Worst software on the planet. I don't use any MS software: never have, never will.
Couldn't agree more. Being in the graphics industry, I rarely use MS software, only to convert Word docs to text. I am forced to use a PC for one client and boy, does that irk me. I have come real close to literally throwing that POS system against the wall.
Long live the Mac OS and Mac computers.

My first glimpse of a PC wasnt too bad because Im not that old or at least I dont look that old (I feel 100). I remember my first glimpse of a Mac. That big tanish colored box. What a beaut (or not) :)
