VMS=Virtual Memory System WNT=Windows New Technology
the GP is being obtuse, but he's making a snarky comment that the letters in the acronym WNT are offset by one from the letters in the acronym VMS (V->W, etc). this is similar in vaguely tenuously stretch of a way to the novel (and movie) 2001 featuring the computer HAL. Wags at the time noted that HAL was a similar letter shift from IBM. That's it, nothing to see here, move along.
I'm starting to understand that choice at the end of Deus Ex where you're given the option to basically blow up the internet and plunge the world into darkness.

California probably isn't the state to play that particular card in: their prison standards are so... exemplary... that they've been judged a violation of 8th-amendment prohibitions on cruel and unusual punishment.
then why are they so fucking expensive? state finances are in the shitter, but prison and teacher perks keep going up and up. public sector unions should be illegal. can you imagine if a steelworker's union bribed the CEO to give them a soft deal? everybody would go to prison. what a joke.
