“I have been asked ‘Why choose OpenVMS?’ It is a question worth asking. While the precise answer depends upon the context, the overall answer is: ‘OpenVMS provides a robust platform and framework for constructing and operating software.’ The benefits of OpenVMS accrue throughout the system lifecycle; not merely during development. Testing, production, enhancement, and other phases of the system lifecycle all benefit. Costs and risks are reduced over the system lifetime.”

The diversity is good.
