Oh, somebody else says "HI", too:

By the way, this is the fist PC I ever played Doom on. Maybe Keen, too, I don't remember. What I know for sure is that I killed the Keens in Doom II long before I ever played any Keen games.
"HI"
sweet Jesus, what a nice coincidence!

... I think I started my gaming career with Commander Keen back in 1991. took me weeks until I realized how to pogo...

My gaming career began on one of these beauties (must have been around '93):

I'm still kicking myself for trashing it in the early 2000's. The pic obviously doesn't show the one I had, but it's the exact same model (386 DX-40). The first games I remember playing on it would haven been Prince of Persia, Grand Prix Circuit (racing), World Class Leader Board (golf) and some Windows 3.1 games. I assume I must have played Keen 1 and/or Keen 4 on it at some point very late in its life. What I can say for sure is that I played Duke Nukem 1 & 2 and BioMenace on it. Even Doom and Doom II ran (poorly) on this little machine. I definitely remember playing the super secret level of Doom II (featuring Keen) on it, so that's my excuse for posting it in this thread.

Randomly found this on Google Images one day:

This guy apparently has a website where he uploads pictures of games he's completed on original hardware. Here's the index for the games he did in 2018 (including all episodes of Commander Keen):

The above picture is a 386 SX-25, as evidenced by this lovely video of it booting up:
