I have been working with Personal Computers since 1981.  I started small with the Radio Shack Color Computers.  After learning to program for business and family pleasure on all their models, I then moved up to the Atari business computers for my office and publishing needs.  [Which, in my humble opinion, were faster and better than the MAC's and the sluggish PC's of the time.  Too bad for the computing world that their opperating system didn't become the standard.]  In fact, it wasn't until the mid 90's that I moved relunctantly into the PC world of programming, not because the computers were better, but because it was clearly the current standard being used in business.  I guess I have the same love/hate relationship with "Windows" that most programmers have.  It's hard to believe that I am now working at my 17th personal computer and already wanting to upgrade ;-)
