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 Software generally ages badly, falling into a state of looking grossly out of date, lacking new functionality that we've come to depend upon as well as compatibility problems.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

You still have that little Sheep? that's amazing you mentioned it. I still let it walk around at times. The timestamp on mine says 1997 - i think i first ran it on a Win95 system.

I first run on 16 bits version of it on my old IBM PS/1 under Windows 3.0. The current version I have is a 32bits apps though. I think the author have updated it after 95.

Thinking of it, used to run the Sierra Screenantics Johny Castaway screen saver. They never made a 32bit version of it though. I could try to export all the ressources and recode it, or I could even decompile it. Win16 applications were far from complicated.
