For me, it is Windows 95 at school and also used ClarisWorks.

Mine was Windows ME, the very first computer I ever had. :)

The first identifiable OS I used was CP/M 2.2 on a 64K Z80 machine. Prior to that the first computer I actually used ran a Tiny Basic from ROM and had 4K of RAM for code and data, so Basic formed the operating environment.

MS-DOS which makes me pretty much a keyboard fanatic and also dates me a bit. :blush:

The original Macintosh Classic, back when my dad used to bring home the little box for work. I was ~5yo and some of the games on it were awesome! Anybody remember the Dark Castle series?

First OS I used was whatever ran on an IBM 360 in 1969. I punched cards and fed them into it, so that may qualify.

The first computer I owned was a VIC-20, in 1981. First "real" computer I owned was an AT&T UNIX PC model 7300 running UNIX System V Release 2 (SVR2), in 1986. The (Motorola based) UNIX PC bore no relation to the (Intel based) IBM PC.
