  Fossil \Fos"sil\, n.
     1. A substance dug from the earth. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Formerly all minerals were called fossils, but the word
           is now restricted to express the remains of animals and
           plants found buried in the earth. --Ure.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. (Paleon.) The remains of an animal or plant found in
        stratified rocks. Most fossils belong to extinct species,
        but many of the later ones belong to species still living.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. A person whose views and opinions are extremely
        antiquated; one whose sympathies are with a former time
        rather than with the present. [Colloq.]
        [1913 Webster]

        described has had its substance modified by long residence
        in the ground, but also used (as with fossil water) in
        cases where chemical composition is not altered.
        [PJC]
  
     3. (Paleon.) Like or pertaining to fossils; contained in
        rocks, whether petrified or not; as, fossil plants,
        shells.
        [1913 Webster]

        clay at Highgate, near London, and apparently a vegetable
        resin, partly changed by remaining in the earth.

     wood, varieties of amianthus.

Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  fossil n. 1. In software, a misfeature that becomes understandable only
     in historical context, as a remnant of times past retained so as not to
     break compatibility. Example: the retention of octal as default base for
     string escapes in C, in spite of the better match of hexadecimal to
     ASCII and modern byte-addressable architectures. See dusty deck. 2.
     More restrictively, a feature with past but no present utility. Example:
     the force-all-caps (LCASE) bits in the V7 and BSD Unix tty driver,
     designed for use with monocase terminals. (In a perversion of the usual
     backward-compatibility goal, this functionality has actually been
     expanded and renamed in some later USG Unix releases as the IUCLC and
     OLCUC bits.) 3. The FOSSIL (Fido/Opus/Seadog Standard Interface Level)
     driver specification for serial-port access to replace the brain-dead
     routines in the IBM PC ROMs. Fossils are used by most MS-DOS BBS
     software in preference to the `supported' ROM routines, which do not
     support interrupt-driven operation or setting speeds above 9600; the use
     of a semistandard FOSSIL library is preferable to the bare metal
     serial port programming otherwise required. Since the FOSSIL
     specification allows additional functionality to be hooked in, drivers
     that use the hook but do not provide serial-port access themselves are
     named with a modifier, as in `video fossil'.
