    My first PC ran MS-DOS as OS and I've learnt QBasic on it. Almost at the same time a friend of mine taught me Pascal.

    My first programming language was technically Turing, but nobody knows what that is, so I voted for Java. After that I learned C, and now I am beginning C++.

    BASIC on the Apple IIE in our high school's computer lab for one semester my sophmore year. Then Pascal on the same computers the very next school year.

    It just makes me sick when some people call themselves "programmers", when they just know a tiny bit of HTML!

    Fortran on a DEC. You wrote your proggy, and handed it to a punch operator, then picked up your stack of punch cards next day. IDE was what we used to do when we didn't want anybody to find us!!!!!!!

    assembly through -debug and later a86 d86, I can still remember the pain of it all but worth it.

    In other words, if you teach your cat to bark (output) and eat dog food (input) that doesn't make him a dog. It would have to chase cars, chew bones, and have puppies before I'd call it Rover ;-)
