DEC: The best of systems, the worst of systems


We'll still using our PDP 11/84

We have run our business on PDP hardware since the early 1980's and may be one of the last remaining holdouts doing so. We have slowly archived and migrated over 25 years worth of data to a Windows network, and for the most part all of our processes have been migrated to modern platforms. We still have one business process still running on a PDP 11/84 (but not much longer). We have accumulated quite a collection of spare PDP boards and other parts, and still have a functioning tape drive and storage units. I'm not sure what we're going to do with the systems. Wondering if anyone else knows someone still running the 'old iron'.
