Here's a quote I thought you'd like from a FrontPage book, Micro$oft's web

"File Transfer Protocol, FTP for short, is a legacy UNIX application that
has migrated into the Micro$oft networking environment"


To which I can only add:

legacy (adj) - A pejorative term used in the computer industry meaning
"it works."
