We had Windows 95 very briefly. It came with the first computer we had in the house but we upgraded to 98 not too long after. Therefore technically I used 95 first but I only really remember using 98. I still remember my parents sitting through the tutorials that came with the OS. I remember the Mozart song that came bundled with it. I remember the various educational CD ROMs we had. My favourite was called Planetarium. Very basic by today's standards but phenomenal to me back then. Here's a link to an archive of the software in case you're interested. Pluto's still a planet!

A combination of DOS (that I didn't understand at all, though my dad actually taught me how to use it to start programs), Macintosh.... whatever OS was used around 1998 ish and Windows XP.

I actually have more nostalgia for Windows mid 90's iconography and aspects due to how ubiquitous it was at the time.

Windows XP was the first OS when I got my first own PC. It was some old, grey tower dekstop that barely ran Morrowind. Daioblo 1 ran fine though.
That's where I played flash games on, little fighter2, TESIII, Age of Mythology etc.
Before that I used Windows 2000 on the school computers in the elementary school computer lab.

Definitely windows XP for me. I recently built a PC specifically to run xp and it's the greatest. I also have some nostalgia for OSX as my primary school had some of the old translucent blue Apple IMACS

The great commodore 64, with a gargantuan memory size of 64k, and no hard disk. Get ready to wait a good 10-15 minutes for a game to load in to memory from a 5.25 inch floppy disk.

Started off on Win98 with some edutainment games. I only really started getting into computers and the internet when my parents got a Windows Vista PC though so that's whats the most nostalgic for me

XP, Vista and some nostalgia for my first OS Windows 2000. I occasionally fire up a VM with XP or 2000, grab a still compatible browser (unfortunately harder to find with each passing year) with Flash player and browse the archives to relive some of that nostalgia.
