    Borland Turbo BASIC for me
    I basically reached its limits that I moved on to the next powerful tool I had access: Turbo Pascal
    The rest is history: Basic -> Pascal -> C -> VB -> Java -> Perl/PHP/Python ....

    My first language was Basic on an Apple IIGS. It was in my middle school computer room. I used to skip other classes to spend more time in there, lol. I still have some of my PrintShop print outs. Back then a color monitor and printer combo was considered cutting edge technology, :-)

    It sounds like we got a similar start. I learned BASIC on one of these little single-line computers:

    It didn't take me long to then discover GW-BASIC on my dad's computer, and QBasic on my uncle's computer, and I've been coding ever since.
