in reply to My first computer was...

This seemed an odd question for me, at least. I started off on VAXen way back when, moved to various Unices, including a NeXT for which I still have the kind of fond memories that guys usually reserve for cars or playoff victories. Given that I was in college/grad school and then moved to a government research facility, I didn't have a need for an at-home computer until fairly late in the game. A Mac/Win-DOS/whatever personal computer didn't do anything for me; certainly not enough to justify the cost. It wasn't until I entered industry in '96 and started making some decent scratch that I could 1) afford one and 2) justify one. I'm probably not the only person in that category. Once I found out that I could run Linux on a Mac and could dual-boot, that was it. And now that OS X is here, oo mama ...

Ain't enough 'O's in 'stoopid' to describe that guy.
