I don't think that this part of the memory lane trip but just to mention:
My first introduction to computers was a machine called ADAM. THAT really peaked my interest in computers: imagine telling a machine what to do and the machine actually doing it! What a concept. Although my primary use was as a word processor (it came with a dot matrix printer and ribbon---awesome!), I was intrigued that it "saved" my place after playing a game called "Monkeyshines"...or any games, really. At the time, I could not afford something called Amiga, Commodore or Tandy but this machine gave me incentive to save money and buy a PC. Yeah, I bought one of the first 286 machines, but who else didn't!!! A lot of these images brought back memories of my introductions to PCs. Good article, Toni!
