Were you amazed at Oregon Trail and when it came time for your folks to "further" your education you insisted on an Apple?

Just curious. I just enojoy hearing other's stories.
I used to hate computers in general. I fell short to believing the computer nerd stereotype. I became a computer freak after a buddy of mine gave me his old machine and hooked me up with the internet. Eventually I started taking a liking to the Macs this was like 4yrs ago. I always searched for a used one to get started with but nothing really came of it. I was satisfied with windows 98. Then a year later I left my previous job for my current job Software Sales. I got to see a Mac first hand work in action. Since then i've been hooked. Dont get me wrong I still use me Windows machine.
