    I'm 21, and I started with computers at the age of 10 when my mom married my stepdad. He had a 386 that he wasn't using at the time, so I tried it out. This is in the days of MS-DOS and WordStar. I wrote school reports on it.

    I eventually got an upgrade to a 486 and Windows 3.11. My stepdad introduced me Xenix, Microsoft's venture into *NIX. He later switched to SCO and so did I (this was back when they were still known as the Santa Cruz Operation).

    The first language I learned was C, using the Borland Turbo C/C++ compiler. I'm glad I learned C then C++. I learned C++ in high school as one of my electives, and I took the AP test for it. Some friends who did it the other way around (C++ then C) have problems with procedural languages.

    Today, I'm in college and I work for the university newspaper as an editor (yes, geeks can write well). I also do other work in PHP, C, SQL, Java, and I'm about to learn Python.

    If you know what my avatar means, cheers to you. If not, don't worry about it.

    That was also when they were in the business of making software, not just litigation

    Nice try John, but it's nothing as geeky as that.

    Yeah, well, what can you say? Except, thank you IBM, OSS, and a host of other fortune 500 companies that have footed the Linux legal bill.
