Ready for your mind to be blown?  Take a look at these stats below (which come from David McCandless of Information is Beautiful).  A million lines of code seems like a lot.  If printed, a million lines of code would take up 18,000 pages of text.

Although they are often thought of as legacy systems, this misleading characterization discounts the fact that these systems often hold extremely critical business logic and still receive heavy investment. Organizations that develop and test applications  in  mainframe  environments  have struggled to keep up with users’ increasing demands for innovative, new functionality, especially considering the trend...
