For me, it was 1988 (FM version 3, I think?) on a Sun 3/50 (the one where the

Peter, the first Windows version was FM 4, I think ... I beta tested it for 
Frame Technology then. Came on floppy disks (I think I still have them around 
here somewhere)!

Side-bar for those who remember the competition: when you ran spell-check in FM 
3, it would correct the word "Interleaf" to "FrameMaker". :)

I believe the first time I used FrameMaker it was version 2.0 on a Next cube.
