My sister (12 years my senior) was the first to get a PC that I got access to. Played a lot of Transport Tycoon in it. I still remember the commands to start the game from dos. She showed me Windows 95 one time but I never liked it. Why would anyone need a GUI if the CLI is available?

My love for code started back then I would say.

A year later I got a PC at home. I would be up all night browsing the local BBS until my mother for the first bill... Let's say we were among the first family in our town that got ISDN and a bit later DSL.

Never got a single virus. Partially because I never could understand how people would click the random button and partially because I setup the account for my mother without admin permissions. She was happy with that arrangement until I moved out
