Depends on definition of "work" i guess.
Is Keil still roughly like a worse version of Borland C++ IDE from 1990 ?
Do they still store meta info (or absolute file paths) that just don't
belong there, in project files, or similar rookie seeming stuff that is
just annoying except for "1 man projects"?
That's how I remember Keil from ~ 2010.
And then the constant license issues with that floating license
server...  there tended to be some sort of problem with that.
The version of then was not thread-aware. On a bigger STM32 running e.g.
FreeRTOS, it was no fun debugging.
(they liked you to use their OS, IIRC, perhaps that would have worked,
for some extra $$$$)
For what it was back then, it certainly wasn't cheap, and that thing an
unacceptable annoyance, so we convinced our boss from then to switch to
something else.

Maybe it's better today.
