Began on the ApplePlus (no shift key, no mouse--no hard drive!). Taught myself. Taught my kids & their friends some basic programming. Stayed with Apple/Mac despite (because of?) all the PCs at work. Hated solving their problems. Hate solving Mac problems when updates don't work properly, screw settings, more snarl. Still waiting for properly debugged updates and for ALL updates to be on CDs not just downloads. Not a computer addict, just a user who wants to do my things, not tech things.
