Hi! I've got onto Bleeping Computer several times before, but my interest is mainly in how legacy programs and systems are sometimes more user controllable & efficient than up to date ones (eg, Diamond Software's Process & Worm Guard). Second, the sad demise of smaller software company programs which never got improved, but completely restyled losing the original advantages (eg, ULead's PhotoImpact series). Worked my way from an Atari STE thru windows 98 & XP pro & Vista home premium, to now just starting Windows 7. Even if you think about handhelds, eg, early 2000s Handspring series - touch screen with little pen - their programs were elegant & did the minimum required, shame that they stop being produced even for the niche market.
