This question was just asked on the Logos Facebook stage so I thought I would ask it here as well. I'm sure that this topic has been discussed in the past but I think it has been a while.

Since we are talking about history here is the official history of Logos. - https://www.logos.com/about/history

By the way my answer to this question is since version 2.0 in the mid 1990s.

It's been so long, in early 90's back when it was on 5 1/4 floppy, not the 3 1/2 hard/floppy.

Have Scholar's Library (RA) set of CD's with Logos Bible Software Series X v2.0 and "Logos Backup Disk" label on 3.5" diskette.

Logos usage significantly intensified with Logos 4 Mac Alpha pre-releases, including initial crash report in Dec 2009.

Thankful for many, many Logos 4 and 5 improvements on OS X.

Thankful for many friendly forum discussions about Logos Bible Software; have learned a lot plus have a lot to learn.

Keep Smiling Smile

First bought version 1.6, then 2.0 under a user name I have long-forgotten. 

I returned April 18th, 2008 with Libronix 3 -> Logos 4 -> Logos 5.

Dale Pritchett sent me a copy of L2 to review back in the early 90's. At that time PC Study Bible and QuickVerse were the big competitors. I am very pleased with the advancement and improvements made, especially with 5 Mac.

I thought I was an old-timer having picked it up in 2002ish.  But to hear people talk about the 90s...geez.  I did have PC Study Bible before that, but not much.  I have been Logos only since I picked it up.

It was '87 or '88 when I first used Logos, but that was back when the "Logos" brand belonged to a different Bible software program...

I was given Logos 4 Platinum by one of our pastors in August of 2011.  I have enjoyed it, even with its occasional bumps, and have since upgraded to Logos 5.

Now we're giving our ages up.  Back when the 5 1/4 and floppies ran on the very old comm\64 or 128's and dos fought with the apple seeds. Also everything was by modem phone to phone.  I once ran Heavenly Clouds Christian BBS on All American Software and used old bible programs that you prayed would get the 0 and 1's put together correctly. Oh my, sure glad in the gracious leaps and bounds we have now...

I am pretty sure it was 1993 when they moved to Oak Harbor.  Then I took a rather long hiatus to spend a decent chunk as I wanted to come back and have spent the most for new content ever in the past couple years.  This new content is not the base program....although I did start OL pckg now Diamond.  I consider say 2000 for package but another 3000 other books and content.

'91 or '92 when Bob Pritchett and Kiernon Reiniger were writing this Bible software in their spare time while employed at Microsoft. I was one of their first beta testers, I think the first outside their own family, before 1.0 shipped. They later went on to quit their day jobs and found the company to market this product called Logos.

I have been a Logos user since Logos bought out the old CDWORD program. I had CDWORD and took advantage of the offer to upgrade to Logos in 1995, so I have been a user for 18 years now.

Wikipedia says "After acquiring data from the CDWordLibrary project at Dallas Theological Seminary (an earlier Bible software package for use on Windows 2), Logos released the Logos Library System platform in 1995.". So it must have been 1995 for me.

I tried out CDWORD a couple of years ago. You would think that it would be a bit stone-age, but it is actually still much better than some of the low-end software you can get right now. (Of course, with the system requirements It is not so easy to run) Logos has come far since then, but I was really surprised with how great this software was.

From the late 90s I used The SWORD project, Interlinear Scripture Analyzer, e-Sword and finally Bibleworks, before switching to Libronix in 2005+/-
