The first computer I ever used was an Apple II. The first computer I ever purchased (for my work) was a Macintosh Plus. The OS came on floppy discs at that time, but we did purchase hard drives to use with them. Apart from a brief flirtation with the BBC micro and later the Acorn Archimedes, I've operated and owned Macs since 1986. And I've still got all the discs to prove it! I'm still searching for the floppies. They are around here somewhere…


What's here:

Macintosh System 7.5.3 (this is the first OS on CD that I still have although Wikipedia states that OS 7.0 was the first to ship on CD (as well as floppies))

Mac OS 7.6.1
