Oldies but Goodies

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

This morning BBEdit reminded me it was time to upgrade to version 11, but what really caught my eye was the copyright notice in the dialog box:

Copyright Barebones Software 1992-2015.

Has it really been more than 20 years since those early freeware versions on System 7? What is it about text editors that enables them to last so long? emacs and vi are even older.

This got me thinking. What software am I still using today that I was using 20 or more years ago?
