Retrocomputing is the use of older computer hardware and software in modern times.  Magnetic tapes and disks upon which home computer software was stored are decaying at an alarming rate. In order to preserve game software and information, efforts are underway to copy from these degrading media onto fresh media which will help ensure a long life for the software and make it available for emulation and archiving.


Software development never really stopped. There are many tools available today.
