Wonderful stuff! Being as young as I am, I don't have much knowledge of the old beasts in the attics, but I have had to program in COBOL here at my job.... Flat file systems? What were they thinking? Razz

What about favorite OS/languages?

I'm going with Linux and Python right now

Back in the day: Clipper 5.xx, GW Basic, a little C++, and low-level Assembly.
Today: nothing at all unless I absolutely have to, then it's Visual Basic.

The accounting software used by my employer is COBOL. It can be turned into a database via Liant's Relativity, which then renders everything unreliable. Very Happy  We've learned to leave it as it is. It might be old, but it's solid, which can also be said of my favorite OS and language: Unix and C.
