Good question! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: I've been at this 20 years and have a few unpopular apps:

0: VB6 (I still maintain quite a few legacy applications that I started over 20 years ago)
1: MS Access (lite versions of our software still use Jet 4.0)
2: MS Photo Editor
3: Many of my own utility apps that I use every day have roots back to the early days

While I'll certainly get thrashed for still using VB6 and Access, let me just say that I can't even begin to calculate the ROI I've gotten on the $180 VS6 suite I bought at uni back in '98! There are plans to migrate it all in the next year or so when my business partner and I can reach an agreement on the target environment. I'm pushing for desktop, she is insisting on web...so probably doing web. Sigh | :sigh:
