I think the thread is What was the first Operating System you ever used? and not What is the oldest Operating System you ever used?
Mine was somewhere around 1992, DOS but that's all I remember. It was on a Packard Bell which came with some special graphical menu for launching apps that they had made themselves. I remember launching games from it when I was little; Space Vegetables (which I wish I had a copy of) has to be the one I remember the most from that long ago, although I never really figured out how to play it.

Man... I remember waaaay back when I was about 4(first time I'd seen a computer) I was using a very basic shell... Can't remember what the OS was... May have been a very basic DOS. If anyone can identify it, I would appreciate it.

First OS I used was Windows 98. Followed by a succession of Windows 95 computers, then Windows 98 again, then Windows 2000. Then from Windows 2000, I moved straight to Vista, then used XP, and now I have Server 2008 and Windows 7 RC1.
