Default Nuke plants to keep PDP-11 UNTIL 2050!

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/06...11_until_2050/

Quote:
HP might have nuked OpenVMS, but its parent, PDP-11, is still spry and powering GE nuclear power-plant robots and will do for another 37 years.

That's right: PDP-11 assembler programmers are hard to find, but the nuclear industry is planning on keeping them until 2050 – long enough for a couple of generations of programmers to come and go.
