Does anyone still use Fortran here?

@aseem company I work for has a bunch of population prognosis models made with Fortran.

@VictorVenema Interesting. I suppose the reason is unparalleled high performance parallel computation.

@aseem Yes and that it would be a lot of work to change the code base; these models are really big. All models use Fortran and can thus share code. All modellers know Fortran, they would have to learn whatever new system would be used.
