        We have various software, such as teleprompters and similar
TV-studio related items, that we have to keep W95/98 machines for as
they absolutely will not work under NT. Another big one I've found
are database applications based on Foxbase under DOS. Nothing
special as far as I/O there, but they throw a fit when run under NT
while custom databases I've coded under PowerBasic run fine and
PowerBasic hasn't been updated in 10-11 years.
