1. Game written in Z80 assembly (it was stupid and dumb).
2. Assembly
3. I always disliked MS and still do.
4. No. MS is just the popular choice so I use it to stay current.

1. Fractal Plotter for the Apple //gs
2. Basic, Logo, Pascal, 68000 assembly
3. It took me a long time to move from Atari/Amiga to PC. I don't like looking back and thinking about what was lost. Microsoft isn't what I would have done, nor is the PC. But here we are.
4. How can anyone say what else would have been? Unless we are talking about specific things which took too long to become mainstream - like the state of video cards. The people which worked at Motorola, Digital, etc. have been absorbed into other areas of the industry. So, their ideas took other forms.

People keep talking about the PC dying...they were in 1985, too.

Don't quite understand some things here.

1. My few first programs were some simple bots asking and answering questions on Atari 65xe
2. I was not using any language in the 80s, but in 90s I used to try BASIC
3. I have nothing against MS nor I am excited
4. For some people maybe. I guess in a couple of years computers become more Black-Boxy than nowadays and few yeas back.

1) CAD (planning chip room for elements) in FORTRAN (IBM-360) 1982.
This code was on punch cards!

2) In that order: FORTRAN on mainframe, BASIC on PC, A86 on PC, TASM, Turbo C/C++.

3) I do not wait for OS-es -- I use them usually after they been in production for a couple of years.
I like Microsoft. At least their APIs are set in stone, not like Apple APIs changing every release.

4) Yes, I agree.
Microsoft OS-es are for regular users and ***UX-es are for geeks and
there are not as many geeks!
