The last upgrade we made to our DOS-based product that supports
our dataloggers was in September 99. We still have users who
refuse to upgrade to the Windows version of the software, because
they feel that DOS is a more stable platform. We run into users who
buy fancy new computers and are put off because the software they
bought 15 years ago won't run!
