  Just to wave the flag around a bit more...I recently received my VMS 7.2
distribution and have been installing VMS like a mad dog around here. I've got
five systems running so far (two VAX4000-400s, a 4000-200, a 3300, and a
3100/80) and it's great. It includes LOTS of layered products (c, fortran,
pascal, basic, tcpip, decnet-plus, notes, etc) and is a breeze to install.

  There's no excuse for having these machines powered off, folks...go get VMS
and fire 'em up!!
