Another oldie here!

I was first introduced to text based Omnis 2 in 1985 at the tender age of 18.  It was my first real job and we were using Omnis 2 on (IRC) Apple ][e 's and subsequently a PINNACLE (68010 SuperMicro) multi user system.  We also had Omnis 3 on Macs and a Lisa.   Those definitely were the days...

Not actively developing any more.  I still use Omnis 7 for my own purposes (and like to stalk the list for nostalgia purposes) but I never made the transition to Studio - I detested OOP at first sight (old dog, new tricks etc) and never got over it!

I started with Omnis on a Mac 128, which I don’t have.  But I do have an Apple ][+ in the attic.  I wonder if it still works...

Shocking!

I started on an apple ][+, now if I could only find one still...

We still have that mac Plus, and it still managed to boot and launch Omnis 3!

Someone pointed out that this pic is of a Mac SE.  We had a Mac plus as well, but we couldn't get it working for our photo.  My apologies - I should've paid more attention!

Regards,
Paul.
