I got 14/15, missed the Microsoft one. Wish I had been smarter about Microsoft, maybe would have invested and now be siting pretty. Oh the advantages we miss in our youth.

I missed three. Just to show you that I was not paying much attention in the 80s. I had to make a living.

13/15. Love the “brothers” question. It was the Marx brothers, right? Just kidding!

Same here. I missed Epcot Center and Hockey winner – never watched Olympics and no excuse for the Epcot Exhibit because I took my wife to Disneyland for her birthday the year they opened it. Still remember the futuristic house!

Enjoy the quizzes – refresh memory. Made me remembered where I was when the hostages were released and which baseball team won the world series.
Thank you.

The first “real” Microsoft operating system that I recall was Windows 95. The previous versions were MS-DOS based and did not use a “mouse” – you had to type in all the commands from a keyboard.

My first was 3.1. I thought it had potential to be a good system. You could use a mouse with it.

How right you are. I turned 30 in ’83. I’ll be ’64 in a couple of weeks. It’s great being a geezer!
