That's normal in industry. See Boeing, they use the 287 processor on new
airplanes. I bet many controllers are using the 8086 still. Usually on
private and isolated LANs.

That flash is used on the office machines that connect to the
controllers does not surprise me in the least. Of course new
developments would use new system at the offices, but the cost of that
replacement may be in the many thousands of euros/dollars range, if
those companies are still in the market.

I know because I created industrial software back then.
