Legal "Federal district judge Dale A. Kimball has handed down the final judgment in the SCO case. The decision dismisses SCO's latest claims, grants declaratory relief to Novell, and sustains the court's previous judgment that SCO owes Novell over $2.54 million (plus interest) for unjust enrichment."

>Windows is a VMS work-alike


BULLSHIT, that's bogus propaganda in some hopes of desperately making Windows seem cooler than it is.

.... Windows is a single user pc operating system that had a few sprinkles one or two 'concepts' that were VMS like in its virtual memory system, and io system.

Of course those same concepts such as split kernel/apps memory space, IRQs etc appear in just about every other modern OS as well, like Linux, OSX etc.

VMS shares as many similarities with other operating systems as it does with Windows...Lots of things about all OS's are somewhat the same. Leave it to Microsoft to try to desperately claim some legitimacy to their most bug ridden product in history just because they hired a manager away from Dec.


Believe me, I grew up on a RSX on a PDP as my first systems admin, and moved on to VMS from there including lots of learning about VMS internals....Windows is not any closer to VMS's design than Linux.


This is a huge myth that was started just because Cutler worked for Microsoft at the time. But the only similarities between his work at Dell and Microsoft was his MANAGEMENT not anything much technical.
