Fujitsu Cobol .NET is a "Visual COBOL" workalike. Object oriented 
COBOL, OLE, etc.

Hoping to keep this marginally on-topic, I've used it to keep some code 
running on Windows that originated on a PR1ME, ported to Wang, ported 
to VMS, ported to MS-DOS, then ported to Windows. For what it does, 
COBOL is very portable.
