I was the same - taught cursive with a fountain pen in junior school, switched to a ballpoint when I switched to a (less nice/middle-class) school at 11-ish, switched to printing as soon as possible, and then to typing as soon as I was allowed to hand in printed essays (university).

I haven't seen fountain pens in a very long time. Probably not since I was 11. (Except in the hand of Neil Gaiman, who likes such things.)
