I would like to add to Rooster Cogburn's list of disadvantages:
Not very useful for IO bound programs. Most useful for programs that are doing millions to billions of calculations per iteration at a time.
1972, my freshman chemistry instructor required us to write a Fortran program to convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius. I think it was about 20 cards for the complete job stream.
