heh, how about USSR's first IBM PC compatible computer
with USSR's first 8086-compatible CPU with PC-DOS 3.30 on it,
that had the size of a large keyboard, 512KB of RAM, external 5.25" FDD
+ the ability to read data from audiotapes through ordinary player,
and was video-connected directly into TV's board? :-D
I wrote my first program on GWBASIC on it.
