    VMS is alive and well, even though Compaq tried to kill it. There is
    a lot of anti-VMS stuff in the Unix world mostly coming from the
    _horrible_ command line and other bad early memories. There is
    also a hell of a lot of really cool stuff under that command line
    we could and should learn from.
