Today is September 11 Monday.

It was the first day of school. I had very excited. We had waited in front of the computer classroom for the first lesson. Finally! The teacher opened the door. It was a dark room with a black curtain. Inside the room, there were many tables and in each table there was one computer. They were IBM 8086 PC30.

The teacher took us in. We sat down on the tables. The lesson had started. The teacher said that “Please press the red button on your computer case for starting”. I pressed now. Hard drive sound started. There was some text on the black screen. PC-DOS is loading. Finally, the command prompt arrived. The first command I typed was DIR. Then the teacher asked us to type our own name and press enter. The message we got was Bad command or filename. Since then, I like to use console. Because of this, I had no difficulties on Linux.

I had met the computer with IBM 8086 PC30. I love it.
