The Amstrad ALT-286 was the first computer in my family, we got it around 1991. While my father used it for word processing and spreadsheets, I mostly played games (especially SimCity and Civilization at the time) and tried to hack around the computer's limitations. I remember getting it to run Windows 3.11 "for Workgroups" even though it wasn't officially supported.

@gueorgui That's pretty cool. My earliest memories of using a computer were in 1996, using MS-DOS. I used to play "Dangerous Dave" a lot

@aadil I don't think I've ever played Dangerous Dave, but I think back fondly to games of that era, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, X-Wing, and so on (wow, all LucasArts games actually!)
