Re: Legacy %

"How many people need to run "legacy" apps?"

*A* *LOT*!!!

a) an application I purchased in the early noughties should STILL work on a new computer.

b) purchased games that are still entertaining, 15 years later. And they might even perform a bit better on 'modern' hardware.

c) I don't want to shell out $$$ for a VERSION UPGRADE for my favorite software package every time Microshaft excretes another OS/change-for-the-sake-of-change.

I doubt I'm alone on this.
