No mention of the Osborne Executive? I would rank it in the top 3, as it did wipe out a company. Most of your examples are from companies that are still in business.

Hmmm... I wonder if I can get Microsoft Bob to run on Windows XP? LOL! Will it run on 64bit windows?

I wonder if M$ would laugh if you called them for tech. support on it or to help install on XP or Server 2003?

LOL! indeed. Yes, Bob runs on XP, Microsoft bends over backwards to make sure that legacy software will run on their modern incarnations of Windows. If you took reversi.exe from Windows 1.0 and ran it on a Vista RC2 install, it would work.

And no, Microsoft EOL'd Bob years ago, so your support call would either be ignored or they would charge you for it.

I got BOB to work on the computer at my job (Pentium 3, XP SP2)
