For nostalgia's sake I just loaded up GW-BASIC in DOSEMU.

What a flashback to 1989: it was the second programming environment I've ever used in my life, and - from today's perspective - it's quite possibly the worst introduction to programming one could imagine.

... and yet I absolutely loved everything about it!

From then on, childlike curiosity took the helm. I was able to pour all my energy & creativity into little programs and it was the most liberating thing I've experienced all my life.


@fribbledom I was lucky enough to get my start with QBasic, when I finally learned about GW-BASIC, it was an interesting experience.
