Ah oldies goldies. I think my first computer experience happened somewhere early '80s when my father got "nice and shiny" spectravideo. I would guess the year was 1981. From that day I've been using computers and my first PC experience is late '80s (probably 1988?, 8088 cpus and stuff
Uh a bit offtopic...heh, anyway I told this because I've been using command line based operating systems (spectravideo had one, C64/128 had one, PCs had many) about 10 years or so. The latest addition is of course different *nix based systems.
I like using command line as long as it won't go too difficult (I mean over 15 words and 10 switches
). Actually I hate Windows GUI and X being a bit better looking doesn't really count too much.
