Old Forgotten Software

I recently ran in to some trouble with a software program I use that got me looking for a resource to find older versions of software. Sometimes older versions are more stable or compatible with what you're trying to do. It's a strange to think that software might become more flawed as it is updated but that's just the strange world we live in.
Whereas some software just doesn't exist anymore. I miss you MSN.
There is also abandonware, which are programs that have long since been abandoned by their creator and are not as freely available online as they used to be. I found a pretty cool website with the answers to all your old programming needs called oldversion.com.
Just the front page brought back memories.
As you can see they have old versions of programs for all operating systems including Linux, and even a few old games. I couldn't get any of the games to work though unfortunately enough.

I know not everyone is going to appreciate this as much as I do, but if you fancy using an older, and sometimes more reliable, version of a program then know there are resources to do that out there. They have tons of programs and as far as I know they're all free.

I should really get paid for this kind of thing.
