    >California Can't Perform Pay Cut Because of COBOL 
    The system is based on COBOL, according to the Sacramento Bee, and the state hasn't yet found the funds or resources, in ten years of trying, to upgrade it. The article quotes a consultant on how hard it is to find COBOL programmers; he says you usually have to draw them out of retirement.

    >COBOL: Everywhere and Nowhere 
    Today COBOL is everywhere, yet is largely unheard of among the millions of people who interact with it on a daily basis. 

    >COBOL versus Java and C# 
    Given that COBOL can be compiled to run on Windows, Unix and Linux servers, so why isn't more of that occurring? Why are so many perfectly good COBOL applications being ported to Java or C#? What's the business case for this? What's the programming case?

    >Why COBOL Could Come Back 
    Sure 'legacy systems archaeologist' ranks as one of the 7 dirtiest jobs in IT, but COBOL skills might see a scant revival in the wake of California's high-profile pay-cut debacle. Perhaps numbers like those won't deter modernization efforts, but the estimated 90,000 coders still versed in COBOL may find themselves in high demand teaching new dogs old tricks.
