Submission + - OpenVMS gets new leason on life through VMS Software, Inc (vmssoftware.com)

Larry_Dillon writes: It appears that the death of OpenVMS has been exaggerated. VMS Software is taking over exclusive development of OpenVMS and is planning on porting to x86. A road map of planned enhancements and developments is available at http://www.vmssoftware.com/new... OpenVMS development languished under HP's stewardship, never finding a good fix in HP's portfolio. Hopefully independent leadership will breath new live into this venerable OS that still sees widespread use in banking, medical and financial applications.

To do two things at once is to do neither. -- Publilius Syrus
