I am one of those people who were luckily able to use those early operating systems used on very old computers before. That was during the time when I was still a student and computers are still new and are still on the process of being introduced to people and to different organizations. I was also able to use one of those early monitors where all texts are displayed in green color or in a black and white appearance.

During those times, the easiest way for a person to open a computer is by using DOS or Microsoft DOS. The earliest version of Microsoft Windows that I was able to use that time was only Microsoft Windows 3.1 I think. Before, computer games can only be played by executing or running the executable files of the game from a command prompt or the DOS prompt. It would be hard for a person to play a game if he doesn’t know anything about different DOS commands because you need to navigate yourself on different folders or directories using those DOS commands. If I’m not mistaken, the earliest version of Microsoft DOS that I have during those times is MS-DOS 5.00, MS-DOS 5.25, and I’m not sure if I got the version 7.00.

Hi Jennifer Brown,

Old computers did not have any operating system. They looked like mainframes. User used the machine for a schedule time, and they had to come with program and data. The machine loaded program and it worked until the program finished or crashed.
