I first started using a Mac in 1986 when the company I started working for had two Plus's and two SE's (with 20MB hard drives!) networked using something called TOPS and connected to a ... (wait for it) laser printer. I learnt how to use the Macs never having used any sort of computer before and became the office guru. I bought a Mac IIsi when they came out, and followed this with a variety of work loaned Macs up till a Quadra 840AV. Then there was the dark period. I started working for a company that was exclusively Windows and this was the around the time that Apple seemed to have completely lost its way. I bought a PC for home and gave away all my Mac gear - Apple scanners, Quicktake cameras, the IIsi, etc. but I kept my Newton MessagePad 120 and 2100 :) I passed up OS X intro for XP and it wasn't until I needed a laptop that I thought about getting a Mac again - the iBook with 10.3 turned me back around and was shortly followed by a Mac mini, then an intel iMac which is my main computer today.
