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 Software generally ages badly, falling into a state of looking grossly out of date, lacking new functionality that we've come to depend upon as well as compatibility problems.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

Believe me, I couldn't agree with you more. Considering 90% of our customer base (mechanics and car dealerships worldwide) are using Windows 95/98/2K and have no reason or want to upgrade, I think we'll be safe for a while.

Sometimes it's hard to remember that the whole world isn't on the cutting edge like us programmers :-)
