How many of the "killer applications" that I started my PC life with - the really original, useful, amazing ones - do I still use?

None.

Remember "Brief - the Programmers Editor"? Gone.

Xtree? (XTree Gold, Pro, Gold Pro, Gold Pro Ultimate Wonder CuresBaldnessAndScurvy Edition included)? You couldn't live without it, but ... despite a couple of (pretty poor) Windows versions it died a death.

1-2-3? Nope.

Wordstar? Dead.

Samna Word / Ami Pro / Lotus Word Pro? (The best word processor ever created) It lost out to the MS Office juggernaut: Roadkill.


Got anything you started off with still in regular use?
