I have boxes of disks that came with my AT&T 5300 and my 3B2, I'll take 
a look through them and see what 3rd party stuff is in there.  I know 
that at least one of them was used for medical billing and has a bunch 
of user data disks and backups that went with it.

Even on more recent Unixes like I demo'd, I haven't had much luck 
finding Serious Business applications.
Winworldpc.com has a little, but I think that this stuff just didn't 
stick around, or never made it off of install media.

Aside: I just barely got Adobe Acrobat working; CorelDRAW was a bust 
though I'll beat on it some more along with WordPerfect.  But these 
aren't super exciting.  I have a to-do to try to find sympathetic 
contacts at Parametric and wherever Dassault Systems ended up to try to 
get old Pro/Engineer and CATIA installers.  Because those CAD programs 
are truly impressive.  CATIA was bleeding-edge at the time.
