>I don't think the Commodore 64 counts. My husband is 32 and *his* first
computer was a Commodore 64.

MY first computer was a Commodore Vic 20, named for its 20 kilobytes of
memory. It had a tape drive and hooked up to a television. My kids learned
a lot about programming from it, because you had to type games into the
computer whenever you wanted to play them.

Unfortunately, the Vic 20 had a design flaw. The power cord inlet and the
video outlet were identical. Guess what happens when an 8-year-old dyslexic
child gets confused? At least there weren't flames, like when he was a
teenager and burned out my hard drive with a screwdriver.
