Such a letdown for MS after producing the most popular html editor of the early WWW era, notepad.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

There was a box like that at my previous job, all unopened Windows 7 boxes. Too bad they were all in inventory. 😁
Nice catch.

I'm getting close to completion with my Office/Windows 2000 collection. Thinking about the individual Server 2000 components next with SQL and ISA Server being already here. Decisions decisions...

Wow! That's a lot of stuff! Nice find!

Thanks, Microsoft put a lot of effort in their products back then. Love these big books!

Not originals or boxed, but not bad for 3$. I'm especially happy about Black and White, as it to my knowledge is not sold digitally!

I missed this before apparently. GoLive. I remember playing with that (I don't think it was the same version as what you have here). Cool stuff actually, but shortly thereafter I started developing a distaste for tools that generated HTML for you, turning my back on previous loves like FrontPage at the same time. Good times! I remember putting together a few very image-heavy web designs with my pirated copy of Photoshop 5 then switching over to GoLive to slap together the HTML for it. That process seemed to work fairly decently from what I can (vaguely) recall.

Excuse me... WHAT?

Haha! Hey! At least I am trying to correct the transgressions of my youth by buying all these old pieces of software I used but never paid for! I have another such one on the way actually ...

They had some big box games in the thrift shop I visited on my lunch hour. All I can say is that they are all mine now!
