Which older software are you using?

Another thread, (about desktop pictures), has mention in it of PaintShopPro version 7, (mentioned becasue it's on someones desktop)... This is from about 2001, so it's about 10 years old... I just wonder what other old software folk are using, satisfactorily...

I'm using the following, on Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit;

PaintShoPro 7
Quicken 2000
Post-it® Software Notes Lite Version
Avery Design Pro 5, (I think from about 2004)
DesktopCalendar, V0.42b the XP version
TurboCad V12

(And I should perhaps mention that we have a number of PCs, about 30 I think, at work still on Windows 95... all running one purpose built application, and working well since late 1996!)

(And lots of new stuff as well!)

I'm not being nosey... and I don't really care... I just thought it might provoke some interesting discussion!

And PSP7. Tried more upto date versions. But reverted back. Do the job I need without the fuss.

Is it possible to get free older versions of Paint Shop Pro from anywhere??

Not legally, as far as I know, DANZIG.

I'm also using PSP 7 on the XP, got mine free on a pack of CDr if I remember correctly.
Also Micrografx FlowCharter 7 from 1997 and Namo Webeditor 3 which I think is about 2000.
I've also got a functional W98 machine with older software on it.
