    My first O/S was some ancient version of MacOS (or whatever it was called back then). I grew up on a Macintosh SE, which broke down when I was 10 yrs old. I matured on MS-DOS, though.

    My first OS was pre-DOS on a PC and used a tape drive for data storage.

    The OS was Olivette only OS. It also had 4k of RAM, then years later was DOS 3.x, then DOS 5.0 then 6.2/Win3.11. Linux was much later. Linus was still looking at naked ladies

    I'm just ye old computer geek.

    MS-DOS 5.0 with Win 3.1 was my first.
