Comment Same thing happened to UO (Score 1) 523

This same thing happened to Ultima Online. When it first came out in 1996, it was a magnet drawing everyone interested in MMORPG. But after 5 years, the game starts to decline. Origin/EA stars adding in expansion modules until it no longer looked like the original game. Please move on as time goes by...

Comment Avionics (Score 1) 953

The avionics business is the same way. A navigational radio or altimeter LRU, developed and certified with tools that run on Windows 98/95, must maintain the machines and various tools is was developed on until the product is 'sun setted' (which is at leased 20 years). One company maintains a VAX 11/780 due to the nature of the product still being in the field.
