one of my products is 23 years old now since i launched it (started writing it in the late 90's), written in vb6. I sold over 1000 copies back in the day (and even sold a new one a year ago). I still have quite a few users who pay support (and a few who don't) and dont see the need to change or upgrade to my newer version coz it does everything they want and they are comfortable with it. my newer version was launched 2010 and is a net framework product, so i suppose 13yo for that is getting quite aged these days, but again i have loads of customers on it. I am a compulsive 'commenter' (always have been) since the 70's, even though the code is never likely to be seen by anyone else, and now i'm in my 60's (and still coding), the grey matter aint as sharp as it once was there's a definate advantage when i need to make mods, and imho code that aint documented aint complete.
