The difference with using all those old lines of COBOL is of course that code doesn't wear out in the same way old machinery does. In fact, those old lines of COBOL running on modern hardware are so fast that it makes little sense to rewrite them. Easier and cheaper to just throw an integration layer on top. If it isn't broken, etc.
