I remember when MS-DOS was the only OS available (to us) for the computer.  We still have the receipt for our Intel 80286 computer...  I should totally scan that and post it.  The computer is still in active use to this day, my parents have been doing their taxes on it for like 26 years, it's booted up once a year.  Playing games on the computer meant so much more when computers were just barely able to function.

you could talk to people and they actually listened ( now they just chat with their phones and stare at their screens).

So you must have the Turbo button? You running at 8 or 12 mhz?   Wink

First there was Fire, then Electricity, and now Bitcoins Wink

My modem was 300 baud. I could read the BBS as fast as it loaded.
Computer display was green and black.
No HDD and no mouse. Everything booted from a 360 or 800 kB 5-1/4 inch floppy disk.
Apple, Atari and Amiga was the way to go for personal computing... IBM was crap.

Then...

My 386 needed a mathematical coprocessor to do 3D drawing.
Windows 95 and it's GUI was a novelty.
7+ X 3.5" 1.44 MB floppy disk was needed to install some software.
