I have a bizarre memory of running COBOL on Microsoft/SCO Xenix System V porting and translating an application for petrol pumps, of all things, from English to Italian. The license for the software was photocopied and not from either Microsoft nor SCO (not that those licenses were original either… Italy in the ‘80s…).

Having said this I might have been using the Xenix box as a terminal into something else although I doubt it as my UUCP node and my terminal were not that PC. It was ages ago and I was traumatised by both COBOL and the application.
