The first computer I ever had was some 90’s beige, enormous hand-me-down from my dad. He gave it to me when I was about eight or nine and told me “no online stores, no chat rooms, have fun!” It ran Windows XP and had Internet access, though at this point I had no clue what an operating system or network was. Still, my brothers installed Kazaa for me and I learned how to download music (not understanding the DRM issues)!
One day, my dad decided to show me a “cool” program on XP. He opened
cmd and said, “Here. This is DOS. This is what your computer runs on.”
