18 years PC
I remember very well. I finished in this year (1989) secondary school (Hauptschule there exist no English word as far as I know) and worked about 5 weeks in summer holiday.
With the money I earned I bought my first PC (Olivetti M19). To get an impression for younger
people. This PC had 640KB RAM, no harddisk, just two floppy 5 1/4" discs. No CD drive ! (1985 Sony released the first generation of CD-ROM drives), green Screen (no flat *smile*) ...
And now after 18 years I took the decision to move from the "dark side" to white :) ...
.. and I can only say it is worth!
I like it really, most of the stuff I have to do is native available in Mac OS X Leopard and other stuff you get as open source. Just a few application are left, but therefor BootCamp and VMWare Fusion can help. :)
So maybe in future more posts on this topic :)
