My first computer was Windows NT back in the later 90's. Along with first real operating systems were the University DEC UNIX (loved the bash shell) and my own dual boot NT with Suse Linux, perfect for IDE uni work with C, C++, Perl, Tck.tk on so on..
Degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering flavored.
I miss the fight to the death Newsgroup flame wars, golden days of the internet. When questions like "what is this html thing, people keep mentioning".
