I have fond memories of using MacPaint on my dad's first Mac - a Mac Plus. This one, in fact. I always drew houses, not sure why. I have less fond memories of doing the floppy shuffle, until he got an external floppy drive.

Those of you with time on your hands and an interest in such things might like to take a look at folklore.org - a collection of stories about the development of the first mac, by people on the team.
