>> What happens to COBOL? (ILE, OO, etc, etc...)

COBOL is still progressing.  There's still a lot of COBOL usage on
mainframes and (more surprisingly) on Un*x systems.  MicroFocus continue to
push the limits with their COBOL implementations check out
http://www.microfocus.com.

The latest ANSI standard is an OO COBOL - but the iSeries users have shown
little or no interest in having an implementation on the box.  Heck most
iSeries COBOL users barely use the facilities of ILE COBOL let alone move to
an OO dialect.

Personally I think the OO COBOL is clunky and I have no desire to get into
it beyond the initial studies that I did years ago.
