It seems that nowadays there's an app for everything and we have some amazing (and often free) software at our disposal. Nonetheless, it's hard to hold back our nostalgia for certain apps from the past. What apps do you miss?
As I was going through the daily feeds I noticed the software blog One Thing Well had posted The Panic Museum, which is where the Mac software company Panic hosts their discounted downloads. This got me thinking about the old software I used to love, when back in my youth—I'm pretending I'm not still in my youth, here—I hacked KidPix with ResEdit, exploited HTML rendering bugs in Netscape 1.0, and created interactive cartoons in Macromedia Director.
Nowadays it feels like beta software tends to work better and operate with greater stability than the final releases of titles we used in the 80s and 90s (or earlier, for some of you), but there was still something wonderful about it. In some ways, I still miss the days of 256 colours and 640x480. We had some great software back then, even if it wasn't actually all that great.
So if you have to pick one title you sorely miss, what would it be? Tell us your favourite—and why—in the comments.
