You still see the ABEND message in the PC world today. Just watch your
local area network (LAN) file server slowly die. You will get ABEND
messages there and they still mean: ABnormal END.

Maybe we don't see this message all that often (as end users - not
programmers/systems people) because the programs have better recovery
capabilities and the hardware is actually more stable now!

Just a thought!

"Abend" used to be a very common term in the industry, in the U.S.,
but perhaps it's no longer used much outside operations.
