The “Enterprise” …

From a discussion with a few peers in the industry.  I was entertained.

peer> Now when I hear someone use the word “enterprise”
   as an adjective, I have to ask them which of the four meanings
   they intend:
peer> 1.  defunct and destroyed (the Enterprise aircraft
   carrier from WW2)
peer> 2.  ancient and nearly dead (the Enterprise nuclear
    aircraft carrier)
peer> 3.  a nonfunctional mockup (the Enterprise space shuttle)
peer> 4.  imaginary (the starship Enterprise)
peer> Typically “enterprise software” fits perfectly in one of
   those four categories.

Name withheld to, of course, protect the guilty.
