Backward compatibility. In some places wich I am doing maintainance, they want 
to keep they old-but useful-and-rock-solid software. It runs in DOS.

In my case, I'm using it with dosemu in Linux, but it clearly has made my life 
quite happy, as I don't have to fight with Windows issues.

"Los promotores del software privativo demonizan algo tan básico y ético como
el hecho de compartir imponiendo términos como el de 'pirata'. Equiparan
ayudar al prójimo con atacar barcos. Cuando me preguntan qué pienso de la
piratería musical e informática digo que atacar barcos es muy malo y,
que yo sepa, los piratas no usan computadoras.”
