Old timers staying around

I enjoyed reading about the mainframe turning 40 (CW, April 19,2004 P1). I've been around a long time and back then the mainframe was revolutionary.

When the 360 came along it meant we no longer had to rewrite every app every time we did a hardware upgrade.

Even today the mainframe equals platform stability.

Like the mainframe I might be an old-timer but I don't think either of us will be going away any time soon.
