My First…….

Do you remember your firsts?

Your First Best Friend.
Your First Day in college.
Your First Infatuation.
Your First Love.
Your First Kiss…….Etc…

Ahem…

I am not trying to dig into your personal life. I am not going to ask you to answer these either. But would love it if you would! No, seriously, you don’t want to know about mine. Its not going to be spicy at all. So you can wipe that smile off your faces.

I owned an Apple IIc while I was in school. I worked on applications for drawing, word processing and spreadsheets. I can remember only the name of the drawing software called LOGO. I also learnt the basics of coding on that. The BASIC language on a DOS prompt. It was only in college that I encountered the magical WINDOWS.

Today I am typing this post on my new Apple Macbook Pro. This makes me a brand new Mac user. If anyone out there knows a good blog publishing software like “Windows Live writer” for Mac, I would be highly obliged.

From Apple IIc to Apple MacBook Pro, both Apple and me have come a long way.

Although writing this post makes me feel like an antique piece, I am referring only to the early 1990’s.
So, what was your first PC?

  7. Yes madam, XP was in 2000. I just finished school in 2000. I got to use it in engineering lab and was amazed at it; it was THE one after Windows 95. I finally got my PC during my 6th semester πŸ˜€
