Office 2003 on my Windows machines at home.
And Brainstorm (always installed, even on my Mac, used occasionally).

On my office Windows machine I have Info Select 8, Brainstorm, AskSam 6 installed, but do not use any of them, except Brainstorm occasionally.

I use Adobe Creative Suite from 2009 regularly.

Great question. Brainstorm, and the original Audible Manager which probably dates around the early 00s, before Audible was purchased by Amazon.

I too am still using Idealist 3 (though in my case it is the final iteration of that version from Bekon rather than Blackwell). It has worked flawlessly on every version of Windows from Windows for Workgroups through to the 64-bit version of Windows 10. I must confess that I have occasionally managed to lose information in Idealist, but only when Windows itself has crashed while Idealist was open (and only material I had added to the database during that session). It is now beginning to show its age in that the installation file doesn’t work in a 64-bit environment so it has to be installed manually, and some of the program settings can no longer be changed via the program interface (though it is still possible to change them by manually editing the settings file). And of course it is plain text only. But for anyone who wants a blisteringly fast and extremely robust text-oriented database Idealist still does the job.

3 of you mention Brainstorm. I’m not familiar with it. Is it a mindmapping tool? What was/is so great about it? A Google just turned up generic ‘brainstorm’ references.
