I started with Mathematica 1.1 or 1.2 on the Mac which was available at 
school, becauseone of professors required it for a physics class. Could not 
afford a NeXT or a Mac; with only a PC at home I ordered the Mathematica 386 
version. Shortly after that I upgraded to 386/87 version and got more RAM I 
think that was version 1.2.

All together about 18 years.
