Windows 3.1 in our school computer lab. I don't remember much beyond that we used it ;p First OS I actually remember anything about is windows 95 which was on our first home computer.

Some old Apple machine my school had with a 3 x 5 floppy disk drive and a green screen that we played Oregon Trail on. Looked like the computers from Fallout 3 and New Vegas. The first computer I actually owned was a Windows 95 machine. It ran like s*** and only had 4GB of memory and 64MB of RAM.

The first I owned used Windows 98, but I used Windows 95 on my friends PC.

DOS, and used to program things in BASIC as a child (6th grade?) just knowing that the next program I wrote would catapult me into floppy disc history.

(It didn't happen.)

First PC was Windows 98 but I used Win95 before that on my sister's PC.

98. I think the biggest notable difference from Win95 was the lack of an "It is now safe to turn off your computer" screen.

I do miss that native DOS support though. If I ever make a legacy PC it'll be Win98se, probably the most stable version of Windows that still had DOS. I hate DOSbox.

Don't remember the first. The oldest I remember though was a VERY old Mac OS. Old enough to the point of lacking color display. It was either that or a Mac OS that had a blue denim background. Both pre-1995.
Sanity. The most important, yet most lacking, thing in the world these days. Try sanity today! Accept no substitutes!
