There is no embarrassment. There is simply the fact that MAME emulates nearly every game that was in 0.37 more correctly in at least one aspect now than it did 10 years ago. 0.37 was a state-of-the-art piece of software in 2001. It's not in 2011, and it is not an accurate or correct representation of the current state of MAME or of hobbyist emulation in general. WinUAE also got a lot better since 2001, for instance. But the WinUAE Android port is based on recent code (I have it on my EVO 4G to run demos - trying to play games is of course not happening on the touchscreen).

On a 10 year time scale, I like Windows 3.0 (the best available in 1991) vs. Windows XP (the best available in 2001). MAME's evolution is not quite as obvious to end users (although the on-screen display UI has changed significantly), but internally it's every bit as drastic as going from segmented DOS-based Win16 to flat-model NT kernel Win32.

You're trying to insert drama where there is none. Iterative products improve over time. It's as true for software as it is for hardware.
