         Um, I'm sure this is a troll, but still -- DEC was a leader in
Ethernet implementation; in SCSI; in RISC (Alpha). VMS was the first to
have true clustering, a technology that is still largely unequaled
elsewhere. DEC's FORTRAN implementation was a leader for many years, and
is still excellent.

         How's that?
