  I vividly remember using Turbo Pascal 4.0 and 5.0 which essentially were Modula-2, or very close to it. I used TP with great success on an 8 MHz PC Turbo with 640 kB of RAM. I had two floppy drives in my computer, one 360 kB and the other 1.2 MB. I used the latter as my system disk where I had DOS and all my Norton utilities and the Turbo Pascal system. Compilation time was blazing fast. 

I also remember using Professional Fortran on the same system. It was quite OK though it was not running under an IDE.

Long live GNU, anyway.
