Privacy, Security, Encryption "When choosing an operating system for use in your enterprise, you need to look beyond the security capabilities 'on the box' and think about how the OS really affects you over the long haul. You need to be prepared for the patching, upgrading, and maintenance issues each OS has and understand how these activities affect your security and availability."

I agree, this OS is one of the most secure operating systeims in the world. It is widely deployed, scalable, and is continuing to grow. HP pissed away a software gem when they acquired Compaq. Had they marketed OpenVMS more than HP-UX, OpenVMS may have had a commanding share of the operating system market. DCL is probably they biggest hurdle to get users to use OpenVMS, but in time OpenVMS will provide a full POSIX-like interface so application developers can take advantage of their huge install base.
