Unix, v6, on a PDP-11 (although I can't recall which model), circa 1977.
Got away from it for a bit, then landed in the middle of the v6-v7 shift
and the BSD takeover a couple of years later. Still recall being amazed
by the Fujitsu Eagle ("small" form factor, "large" capacity).
And I'm appalled that my phone has more horsepower than a dual-cpu VAX
11/780 with a floating-point accelerator. That just doesn't seem right.
