My first PC was an IBM with two 360K disk drives, 256K Ram, with a monochrome monitor. (I won't even mention the Commodore VIC-20 or the Apple II.) Because of the limited disk space, all of the development I did was in 8088 assembly language or BASIC. In time I bought a 'huge' 10MB hard drive for it and started developing in C. Most of the work that I did at home was for other PC users because this was several years before the PC was generally accepted in business.
When the PC finally hit the work place it really took off. We kept using the old systems primarily as data servers and moved applications off to the desktop. Currently my language of choice on
the PC is Visual Basic because VBA is built into so many MicroSoft products.
