Kind of impolite to ask people age in a public forum, don't you think?
If it is any good to you when I started using computer I carried a deck of cards. There were only mainframes computers in those days and people had to punch a paper tape just to run a program, as everything was done in "batch". An operating system was managed by full time "System Operators" and public users had no access to it.
We submitted our input by a deck of cards (each card record one line of text, 128 characters if my memory serves me right) or paper tapes and the output was always a lineprint output.
May be that is the reason why I am now hungry of owning as many as operating systems as possible.
The first PC I owned had more ram than the company's central computer. My first hard disk was bigger than their entire fleet of exchangeable hard disks too.
I am a Linux newbie but in my 3 years with Linux I probably have learned more than the last 30 years with Windows.
