Re: Legacy Code / payroll etc

" they are stuck with all that old COBOL."

The world has moved on, legacy these days also includes C, Java, Javascript, VB, Ruby on Rails etc. ie. any programming language/environment that was popular in the 1990's and early 2000's...

But saying that, a payroll system implemented using COBOL is probably easier to maintain than the same system implemented purely in C or VB...
