At this point, everyone on this list could have an S/34, S/36, or
S/38! Beyond them, I do not think any of the other minis are in real
trouble of scrapage, as most are doing things that are not COBOL based
(like the hoards of PDP-11s, and few -8s, still doing industrial process

Unfortuneately, I think the other business minis (Burroughs, Honeywell,
etc.) are mostly all gone now.
