Started out with a Vic 20, then progressed onto Spectrum 48k then Spectrum 128k somewhere in between had an MSX , then Atari ST then Amiga 500 when onto various PC’s also had a ZX81 at one point.

I still remember sitting down with the Spectrum and entering game programs in that used to be published in the magazines at the time and listening to the tape screech away on loading a game. Spent many an hour playing on Manic Miner.

Ah the memories :chuckle:

Commodore 64 -> Commodore Amiga 500+ -> PC built around Intel 486 -> ... -> and now I’m stuck with more-than-5-years-old PC built around AMD Sempron… I hate AMD ! :)

Btw, just a few weeks ago I managed to find Amiga 500 and install it again. It’s a great computer! Those were good days, when the only thing I cared about is playing James Pond Robocod, Mortal Kombat 2, SWOS , Cannon Fodder and other games! :) I don’t play new games anymore, they’re usually boring… :) Plus, new games wont work on my machine :D

OMFG ! Vikings! That game rulled!

I can’t remember how my first computer looked like, but I remember we had it somewhere between “94 – “95 .Dad loves techy stuff so he got one as soon as it was availble.I remember having some giant 8” floppy disks and I used to play Supaplex, that was a great game for a kid my age.How fast things evolved… I wonder in the next 20 years or so what’s going to happen.

How do you guys think a 2030 PC / Mac will look like?

My first computer was the ATARI ST (I bought a second hand one) in 1987. This was the time I discovered the world of MIDI ! :)

Got hooked when our school got 5 Apple IIe computers. I wrote my first code back then…

  • 10 print Hello
  • 20 goto 10
  • 30 run

Output:

Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

That was like the most amazing thing back then!

I saved all summer of mowing lawns and got a Radio Shack TRS -80 (Color) that rocked until the Commodore 64 & 128 came out. Mainly played games on those, but the seed was planted and I’ve never been without a desktop computer since.
