Not full-time, but still a paid scribbler for everything from PC Mag to MacUser.

In this century, I have written columns on a Mac Classic II (in the
21st century) and on an early-1990s 386sx laptop under WordPerfect
5.1. I have toted a Thinkpad Butterfly internationally, repeatedly. I
am currently building a bootable Live USB with PC-DOS 7.1 and MS Word
6 for DOS as a distraction-free writing tool.

Yeah, some people totally do. Weirdos, probably, but yes.

And I am typing this on an IBM Model M (made 1994-05-06) which is
attached to my Core i5 Thinkpad X220, bought used in January for £150,
which is my newest and most powerful laptop. In fact probably my
newest computer of any kind.
