I don't remember the name, but it wasn't a common OS I've used. It's like these with the Select 1-9 type of crap. Best app I've used on it was Golf...and it was a 286.

We had an old 8088 back then, and we've had diskettes...one card game and one tetris game. Came with...I believe DOS 2 or 3...I don't remember.

I guess it was have to be a spectrum, or an early acorn/risc machine!

I believe it was called Apple DOS, the operating system that is on the Apple II Plus from the late 70's - early 80's. I used to write games for it in BASIC. I was like....10-12?

Had one of those too, Packard Bell 300SX with windows 3.11 for workgroups and MSDOS 6.22. I actually still have the floppies for both.

The first Packard Bell system I've touchd was from a buddy of mine...and their designs are HORRID!

The real first 3.1 machine I had was an IBM Valuepoint:

I've toyed with many, but the oldest that I actually used for an extended period of time is Windows NT.
