remains the unfortunate truth that there are more professional Cobol programmers than C programmers, more C++ programmers than Java programmers, and for many years there will be more Java programmers than there are followers of the successor language. Most people are perpetually held back by legacy code. Nobody knows the meaning of "legacy" more than Cobol programmers, who are often maintaining 25-year old programs. Windows application programmers are held back by 5 to 10 year-old code
