Occasionally we need these old apps!

http://www.oldversion.com/
https://www.oldapps.com/ has also broken links!
https://www.oldapps.net/
https://en.softonic.com/downloads/old-versions I don’t know what it is worth!

Dang. I generally don't consider myself the nostalgic type but I actually got emotional seeing some of those CD covers.

If I could go back and do it all over again I'd buy a big CD pressing outfit and distribute stuff like that for free.
