<<I can put this stronger: The very reason our numerical weather
prediction software is still written in Fortran 77 is due to the fact
that that way we can be assured of the collaboration of [the Weather
Institutes] of smaller European countries, where Universities can't
afford Real Unix Workstations.
What exactly is a "real unix work station". Given that the best cost
performance on small scale unix platforms now comes from running
GNU/Linux on a cheap PC, I find that hard to understand.
