We started with DOS DOS 1.0, 1.25 on 5.25" floppy and have had all original disks Thru Win 7. Except Win ME.
I was told my DOS 1.0 floppy are worth a $1100+ ..

I didn't want to upgrade past 98SE for the longest time. It was a great OS.

Started with a DOS 1.something or 2.something, can't remember which. Worked up the DOS line until DOS 7 (I still have those disks, I think). Went to Windows 3.1, 95, 98, 98se, ME, XP and now 7.

Had Linux Red Hat on dual boot once, tried UBUNTU, not crazy about it.

I was told my DOS 1.0 floppy are worth a $1100+ ..



I don't think I had DOS1, but I'll look around, see if I have the disks. I haven't gotten rid of any OS's yet. I don't think I have anyway.. :blink:
