People often ask me how or when I started working with computers, programming, etc. My answers usually hark back to my childhood and my first ventures with my parents' Macintosh Plus, then our family Performa, and my Powerbooks 180c and 540c. Basically, all of my earlier computer encounters were on a Mac, from learning to type to learning my first programming language to discovering the internet for the first time.
Sometime during the late 90s I became frustrated and angry with working in a Mac world and I "converted" to my first Windows machine, vowing to never look back. Since that day I've been working primarily in Windows and Linux, only touching a Macintosh when absolutely necessary... that is, until this last week.
