486-DX2-66-HWI don’t miss that slow chunk of dust.  But while I’m thinking about it… I bought my very first personal computer at Sears in Morehead City NC.  It was a Packard Bell 486 DX2-66.  I remember it coming with Windows 3.11 pre-bundled.

I was continuously learning with it, mainly by breaking it in such a way that it would no longer boot the operating system.

Eventually I installed Yggdrasil Linux onto it and began my journey learning about Linux.

Today Packard Bell is owned by Taiwan-based Acer Inc.
