40. Heck, I've still got the original disks to my copy of WordStar!
...which worked just fine on MS-DOS 6.0, with my trusty dot-matrix printer (which used good ol' pinfeed paper) happily churning out page after page (more-or-less lined up) until the ribbon finally ran dry and I'd re-ink it with several drops of bottled ink kept around just for that purpose which I'd usually get on my pants which is why I always wore navy-blue pants so the stains wouldn't show...

And we liked it that way!
