    What was your first computer?

    Mine was a Toshiba Satellite Laptop running Windows 95! I was like 6 at the time.

    Dad gave it to me when he got a new one and played Sim City 2000 and Gizmos and Gadgets on it all the time.

    You young'ns have never experienced MS DOS in its true glory.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    It was a dell inspiron laptop.

    I didn't have the luxury of a computer until later in my life anyways.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    I experienced MS-DOS too m8
    I used ms-dos 6.22 to play old games back then.

    I write software that runs for DOS too. Along with software that doesn't require an OS, loads straight from a floppy and only uses BIOS functionality

    Yeah I guess. But if this shit isn't patented, start selling OS-less floppy games. :P

    makes no sense

    Nobody has a diskette drive anymore
    BIOS is really inefficient and provides bare functionality. I only make simple diagnostic tools for educational purpose, or work on my hobby OS

    Pretty much every Microsoft OS for PC from 1986 until 2000 (excluding Windows 2000) has some version of DOS as its backbone. So anybody who has used 95/98 has used DOS.

    in addition to this, DOS is more than a backbone, it's completely DOS based

    Overwriting the DOS interrupt (0x21) handler in windows 9x will render the system unusable
