I would say that the oldest application that I have and currently use often on my computer would be Graphing Calculator 2.2 from Pacific Tech. Yes, I have to boot up in OS 9 for it.

GC220 sort of functions like a mathematica application, but somewhat more shaky. But for $60 or whatever it was, it has helped me significantly in mathematical skills.

WOW -- How long ago was that released?

I am a Mac newbie so I don't have anything older than OS X.

As for the PC, I do still use Aldus PhotoStyler 2.0 on a regular basis... (released 1993) :eek:

Someday I'll upgrade to Photoshop -- for the Mac!

Lode Runner

The original Lode Runner copyrighted 1983, 1984. Still runs in classic mode if you can remember the commands.

i have a bunch of old black and white games -- loderunner, shufflepuck, triple yatzee, backgamon, space-station pheta
i'm not sure where i got them from but i know that i've had them since they were on floppy disks and not downloaded.
they've been transfered through about 6 computers (my main ones that are changed out every so often) since they were on floppy.

PS 1 is just great... Really fast, yeah. A bit limited though :D

I don't remember when it came out, but it's old, that's for sure.


It's really fun whenever I open my graphics-app-folder on my hd when both PS 1 and PS 7-folders appear side by side... ;)

Nothing too special, 1997 version of simpletext. Don't even know why I have it, weird.

I would love to see PS1, one of you guys start it up and show a screen dump. The oldest version I ever used was PS2.5, that was at least before layers.

ALDUS PAGEMAKER 5.0

ALDUS PAGEMAKER 5.0 . Its on floppy disks. I'm running it now on my new 700mhz ibook. I love it over the new Adobe Pagemaker version. Guess I'm just used to it.

Technology has made my life complicated because now I have no excuses.

between yourself
I've got StuntCopter (from 1988), Claris 3, ClarisDRAW 1.0, and Fontographer (which hasn't been updated since 1997).

I also have the original Mac OS under emulation - and in OS X, no less!!

let me think...

I think I have Claris Works 2.0, japanese version that came with my Performa 5320, and Filemaker Pro 2.0... ALso, a black and white absolute 2D game called "The Big One". It was a shooting game... Movie Paint or something also came with the performa, and Claris Email lite, and Super Maze Wars that came with my Dad's PB 5300.

That's all I can think of, but I'm sure there's more, and I have it on the old machines..

Hmmm, that would be A-Mazing. As I recall, it ran on System 1 pretty well and was the first Mac application I've ever had the pleasure of playing around with - other than the Finder that is. :)

Since I don't actually have it anymore (c'mon, it's been 18 years!), I guess I'll just have to disqualify myself...

*disqualified*

:confused:
