Heh.. I feel so young in this thread.. Although some of my first
computing experiences were with BASICA on the green-screen Compaq
Portables that Dad occasionally brought home from work.. And I do
recall some that had only 5 1/4" floppy drives and no HD, which gave way
to one 5 1/4" floppy drive and one whopping 10-MB HD.
Of course, that was when I was five..
We have a Commodore Plus+4 somewhere.. No peripherals at all though, so
it tended to get tedious having to write down my programs on paper and
re-key them every time... Eventually its ROM got a little buggered
somehow as well. But it was awesome in that it supported more colors
and had a 3-voice melody and noise generator.
Those were the days, though! (-:
