If there were any Justice in the world, the IT greybeards would find their selves in demand during their declining years taking care of older systems that were dominant before the young generation came along.

Yes. Many of those systems are still around. I occasionally run into an older programmer still working in COBOL.

I work mainly on a legacy database platform that I've know since 1984 called "Multivalue". I spend another 10-20% of my time with the .net web technologies. I became proficient on classic ASP (old web development tool) back in the early 2000's. Then they went to .net and I was left behind. I'm playing catch-up again.
