My god, 20 years using Apple...

$Cn00 can get you into a lot of trouble on an Apple ][...

Personally, I think the poll was right to not specify an OS for the Apple ][ series, although I suppose that is how GS/OS got left out. But before the IIgs, most A][ people didn't have hard drives, so we could move freely between DOS 3.3, ProDOS, ProntoDOS, FASTDOS, Diversi-DOS, or whatever other DOS 3.3 variation we prefer. Heck, I even remember a 'viral' DOS that would write itself onto the DOS tracks of any disk it encountered! Anyway, then with the IIgs, Apple brought us ProDOS 16 and GS/OS, both with code borrowed from the Apple ///'s SOS...

Anyway, I was strictly DOS 3.3 (and variations, mostly Pronto-DOS) until I got my IIgs...in 1991...and didn't buy a Macintosh until last fall. Meaning I've been using GS/OS 6.0.1 for a while now. So my first Macintosh OS, passing familiarity with other versions notwithstanding, is really MacOS X.2.4!
