I started with a "white box" 086 computer with a 500 KB (that is one-half of a megabite) hard drive that used the large 5.5 inch floppy disks and ran under Dos. My only exposure to Windows was a runtime version that came with the Aldus PageMaker program (Aldus was later purchased by Adobe). I have come through the ranks over the past 25 years.
Actually, I need to go back one step. I started using a mainframe computer with what were called "dumb terminals" back in the late 70s. You could type your stories and then send them to the typesetting machine. You were able to enter code at the beginning of the story that let you pick the point size and column width. The font was limited to the single font that was on the typesetting machine. We have come a long ways.
