I started with an IBM XT with both 5-1/2 inch and 3-1/2 inch disk drives, 64K RAM and CGA monitor.
I graduated to 10 GB hard drive on a Pentium and used WordPerfect exclusively until Microsoft mucked it up by changing the Windows 95 OS and disabling WordPerfect's functionality. Later added a Compaq with 512K RAM and a 40 Gb hard drive and bought a used copy of MS Office 2000. I picked up Adobe Pagemaker and Photoshop and MS Office and started learning photo work and desktop publishing. Bumped up twice more till I have a Gateway with 1 GB ram and 120GB IDE and 350GB SATA drives. Stuck with XP because I couldn't afford to buy new versions of my Adobe software.
I believe the future of the Internet is easy to use, durable software that makes it easy for users to produce high quality content and doesn't force you to relearn skills every year.
