The language is NOT dead. Our core product is a havy-duty cobol crunching engine. It runs under Micro-Focus on a variety of unix boxes, including Linux. We have added some Java front-ends to it, and some additional reporting and data mining capabilities. But the core is still COBOL, and will be for many many years. What COBOL does, it does well. TMTOWTDI applies across languages and platforms.
