A recruitment advertisement (now deleted) released by Siemens Mobility has revealed that their client, Deutsche Bahn (DB), is still using the 30-year-old Windows for Workgroups 3.11 system internally. This system was released in October 1992. Siemens is actively seeking a system administrator with knowledge of traditional operating systems, particularly Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, to handle updates and maintenance of this system for Deutsche Bahn. The job description also states that the display systems in train cabins run on Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, providing real-time display of all critical technical data to the train drivers. It is reported that this system is most likely used for the older ICE 1 and ICE 2 high-speed intercity trains. Siemens Mobility has confirmed the authenticity of the recruitment information, explaining that the lifespan of trains and railway infrastructure is typically 30 years or longer. The company assures the public that their clients continue to use industry-proven legacy systems safely, and Siemens provides support and maintenance throughout the entire lifecycle. The company also adds that the updated systems are developed using currently available software products and may even incorporate artificial intelligence.
