People who hate VMS are the original anti-VAX-ers.

@twylo I bid on a MicroVAX on eBay today and I'm still a bit sad that I got outbid even though it went for a ludicrous amount of money I really couldn't afford to match.

Boo, that sucks :( I remember when they were basically being given away as scrap.

@twylo I know, I'm kinda responsible for scrapping some old gear myself. I couldn't save it all.

I have a good selection of DEC Alpha history in storage, because I had to pick my battles. If I just wanted to run VMS I could spin it up on a DS10 - but a MicroVAX would have been sweet to have too. 😀
