Dumb terminals... Serial terminal servers... HP-UX on PA-RISC... AS/400... SCO Unix... OpenVMS on Alpha... Funny story, the latter two systems died right in front of me when they refused to run backups. The SCO server was eventually virtualized (as all it did was hold an LDAP database), and the Alpha server simply went away... and the (financial) data never replaced or converted and backloaded into the AS/400.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
