I believe that when you say "Apple user" then you actually mean a "Macintosh user". But I even had Apple computers before the Macintosh was released on the 18th January 1984.
My earlier Apple computers were: II+, ///, and even a Lisa.
I got my first Macintosh on "day one", i.e. the 18th January 1984, and I have followed "the Macintosh path" ever since. I did try the IBM DOS, OS/2, and later the Windows based PCs, but I never liked any of them.
I still believe that Macintosh is the best computer.
