Submission + - Microsoft thinks a VAX is an Itanium!? (microsoft.com)

I think the guy is typing on a keyboard on top of an HSC. (Hierarchical Storage Controller) Next to that is a VAX 6xxx, a VAX 8xxx then an empty cabinet (probably a Star Coupler), a VAX 8500 and another VAX 6xxx. Closest to you is the RA82 in a four unit config. That holds a whopping *3.5GB*. As an old ex-DECcie who managed all of these systems at one time, I found it both amusing and sad to see this picture. Long live VMS!"
