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 Software generally ages badly, falling into a state of looking grossly out of date, lacking new functionality that we've come to depend upon as well as compatibility problems.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

Luckily in Windows 7, there is the 'seamless' Windows XP which can run win16 stuff..

I still use.... QuickC for Windows..

Becuase it's got a good help system, and it's SMALL, only 4 1.44 MB floppies!

I just wish the debugger ran properly, but for that I end up with Virtual PC, MS-DOS 5, Windows 3.0 ....
