I think windows ME for me, I remember the background becoming that error thing and having to click the button to restore it, so I'm pretty sure it was that.

First was DOS.

Then some early MacOS (god those were bad)

Then Windows 95 (civilization had finally arrived)

Then some more MacOS, all the way up to version 9. Never really getting any better.
I kept 95 at home, and got a new computer with 98.
Dumped 98 on the machine for XP in 2005.
New machine in 2008-9, running XP still.
New laptop running Win7.

Windows 3.1 is the first I used, Windows 95 was the first I built for myself when I was approximately 14.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Windows 95. My first PC (well, really a family PC) was a Packard Bell with a 233MHz Pentium, 64MB of RAM, and a 4GB HDD.

Actually the first PC I had I have no idea what the OS was...
It was uh... basic... it had a command prompt and some inbuilt games that I hardly remember that I remember spending ages playing but I think they were terrible.
Then came that Windows ME one, it blue screened and was never heard from again (2006 I think it was replaced, a guy sat next to me was saying how Runescape was running slowly, and knew how to speed it up, and deleted Sys32 or something).
then 2007 - 2013 was Windows Vista
Now it's Windows 7, considering going to Windows 8.1
