    I'll go with MS-DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1. The big first upgrade that I remember was to Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. That's when we got file sharing in the office, now that rocked.

    Atari GEM/TOS (Atari 1024ST)...

    In those days, a harddisk of 20mb was huge and almost impossible to fill

    DOS 6.2 until I installed Windows 3.1. I wish I hadn't broken that old computer.
