+ - VMS Operating System Turns 30

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Digital Equipment's venerable VMS operating system has just turned 30 years old, and it's living on well past what VAX minicomputer users of the late-1970s would have expected. Today it lives on as HP's OpenVMS, and one version or other of the OS is in surprisingly widespread usage. The InfoWeek story reports that the Deutsche Borse stock exchange in Frankfurt runs on VMS, and the Australian Stock Exchange runs on it. And Open VMS controls the system Amazon uses to manage shipments of 112,000 packages of books and DVDs each day."
