well, we sure don't use them!  haven't for 15 years or so!

but as to the lowest common denominator, well, we do have a 5251 in our
shop.  it's the only terminal on the old 36, that we turn on once a
month for a tape conversion that the as/400 tape drive can't read.

but last week i was at a client's that had a lot of 3196 terminals.  and
about a month ago, i was at one that still has 5291's.
