DOS 6.22. Nothing like a bit of 486 fuelled gaming before I hit the hay.

Total Commander, if that counts.

I use it on my modern computer, on my WinXP system as well as on my Win98 rig. There's even a version for Win 3.1 which works great too. Oh, and I also consider Norton Commander a mandatory part of my DOS 6.22 experience.

I still use Microsoft Office 2000 as my main word processing and spreadsheet software. From a copy of my original disk I got with a PC in 1999 I think.

It may be ancient but it does everything I need it to. I use Office 365 on my work laptop for Work which is undoubtedly better but 2000 is still just fine for faffing around at home.

I have a vacancy for a main Windows 98 PC

I use Notepad++ as my main text editor, however it's bloaty and slow to load, so for quick editing of ASCII files (batch files etc.) I still use UltraEdit 8 from 2001.

I also wrote a bunch of text-manipulation macros for it which are still useful.

Win7 on my 2 personal laptops. both are just used for web browsing but the older one is also my sacrificial downloading of questionable sites PC.
While I do prefer Win7 to 10 this is more of a case of I cant be bothered to upgrade the machines.

XP/WMP 11 rig as my mp3 jukebox while working form home.

I also fully agree Office 2000-2003 is just the right mix of function and ease of use, I still find the ribbon and the 100's of function's I'll never use slow me down rather then make me more efficient.
But if I'm doing something boring like typing up a letter I'll also use my boring company laptop which has currant versions of software installed

Well yes Winamp (there is no better music player, period) and Media Player Classic (have not get into VLC) will be in my main workhorse computers forever. But every retrocomputer has Volkov Commander as the file manager and launcher. Usually all retrocomputers get a copy of Windows 3.11 FWG. Because it is so easy to install, and i have made an universal portable installer, all default, no network, vga and no sound. but you can add that later. Because the original installer is slow. Ohh and still using Windows 7 in my main machine. Still holding on.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.

Oh yes, I do remember Volkov Commander and some other russian NC clone from PTS-DOS..
Back in the 90s, though, VC was too new/crowded for me and I simply stuck to Norton Commander 1 and another "NC" program, maybe Northern Commander.
Perhaps, because at the time, I was scared by the abonimation that I thought NC 5 was.
- Because, that's what all NC clones tried to mimic. NC 5. Oy. 😰
