To be fair, nothing you've named ever got a Windows version (?), so given that nobody these days works with DOS...it's only fair they'd no longer be used.

I'm looking at my "old utils" folder (which is in OneDrive, so it gets synched automatically across all my systems)...there's plenty of utilities that go back to my DOS days, but I've probably not fired up any of them in years, even once.

The oldest file is ARJ.EXE (1993), followed by AMCAP100.EXE (1998). I actually use that one every once in a while, to test whether a webcam's drivers work. But it looks like I have none of the DOS utilities from the 80s anymore.
