Re: The secret of (lost) computer interest

<t>I startedout on a ZX Spectrum, and have always reckoned that a major difference was that in a sense the OS was the programming language: the instant you powered the machine on, you could run the same expressions that made up the BASIC language; the only difference being that you didn"t prefix the...
