Re: [Czechlist] "legacy version"
- In my field - telecomms - legacy equipment or SW means "existing" in most cases, not necessarily obsolete but something to be still dealt with, to be linked to, to be preserved.
The meanings of words may differ in various fields and contexts - I cannot imagine a car manufacturer naming his new model "Legacy" if it meant something obsolete only.

Subject: [Czechlist] "legacy version"
I am having trouble finding the way to refer to "legacy version" or "legacy software" in any other way than "starsi". However, I want to refer to the software with the insulting tone that "legacy" would convey.
Can anyone help?
