    At least one. I have three machines that still run a fair number of a.out
    binaries. Some of them I simply haven't yet bothered to update since they
    still work, and some I haven't found source for yet. But I'm on your side
    to the extent that I know they're there and I intend to rebuild them all
    as ELF at some point. I don't prefer a.out binaries, I just have 'em.

    Please, no more software products offering a "richer experience"! I have
    indigestion of the brain already. Give me a more ascetic experience.
