When I retired, I was so sick of Microsoft and Windows that I bought an Apple. For me it was the right choice.
I have an Apple //e with duo disk drive and Epson dot matrix printer in the closet upstairs. Does that count?
The power supply failed last time I booted up and can't find a replacement.
I've programmed Cobol on mainframes, Assembler (just a tad), something called DE-RPG, some Unix scripting, PeopleSoft and a few other things. I've made the rounds with asset management / inventory, disaster recovery, change management, service desk and other things. I must have PO'd a lot of people over the years to get those last few assignments
But I have never programmed in Windows, so I guess I have that going for me.
(OK, I did do some .bat files) I've used Windows from 3.1 up to 7, now I'm retired. I still do some part time work for the company supporting a Unix application for file transfer. It gives me spending money to support the AS and gives me place to hide when the wife is vacuuming.
I don't want to switch to Apple, I'm too engrained in Winders now. Mostly I do email, this forum and shopping at Amazon. I think when they all die I'll just scrap 'em and stick with the smart phone. Maybe I'll go fishin'
