    Because the intent of the poll was the first Personal Computer you owned. Very very few people started off with their own mainframe.

      At the very beginning of computer era very few people owned any computer at all, because it started with mainframes.

      When I am asked "my first university was..." I usually answer "St.Pete state university" and do not mean that I own it.
      Very few people own university
