OSNews, Generic OSes Software moves on at a break-neck pace these days--version numbers clock up ever quicker as vendors try to market their apps as the latest and greatest. Software generally ages badly, falling into a state of looking grossly out of date, lacking new functionality that we've come to depend upon as well as compatibility problems. Dear OSNews readers, what old software (5+ years) do you still use, why, and what problems do you come across in sticking with it? Read More for my own contribution to the list

Every year or so I spend a few nights playing the classical Lucas Arts game, such as Day of the Tentacle, Pirate of the Carribean, etc.

Also some of the earlier Sierra Online games, such as Heroes Quest (Quest for glory), Kings Quest 3.

Thanks to the ScummVM it still works under Windows, and even for GNU/Linux and Mac OS X.
