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 Software generally ages badly, falling into a state of looking grossly out of date, lacking new functionality that we've come to depend upon as well as compatibility problems.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

One of the best and classic turn based strategy games out there.

There's a steam version which they ported it to dosbox and fixed up some bugs. I still play it too.

I play this game almost every year start to finish. my cousin bought it new and i still have the copy he made for me well over a decade later.

best game ever!

Dos with a win 95 installer, needed a few patches for xp. needs even more now that i don't have windows.

it beats 1&2 for the sole reason that it had real time and was more visually appealing to me back then. tense soundtrack too.
