With a little bit of poetic license, I started with Mathematica version  0 
(i.e. SMP, which was Mathematica's immediate predecessor, created by Stephen 
Wolfram et al - see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_Manipulation_Program), which ran on a 
Vax 11/780 as I recall, because that was the only computer in the group 
where I was doing my PhD around 1980.
