• Has comp.os.vms turned into comp.os.any-os ?

    Hi.

    Tried to read through the 100+ new messages now but had to
    give up when not finding any VMS related posts.

    Could we just ditch all Linux, SCO, AIX, whatever stuff?
    I'm sure there are other appropriate forums for those OS'es.

    Jan-Erik.

    Tell you what: I see some other posts in this group that might interest
    you: one about free calls to some Middle-East country, another one
    advertising some medical product attached to the name of a former Oprah protégé, and something about photography services and even tailoring.

    Why don’t you read those, instead?

    With what's been done to Linux over the years, I'm leaning towards
    switching to one of the BSDs, or even OpenVMS/x86 (if they can allow
    third party drivers so I can actually run this bare metal on my
    Threadripper and have nice things like X11/Wayland as my OpenVMS
    desktop). 

    None of the BSDs have been infected by the madness that's currently
    afflicting Linux and FreeBSD supports ZFS which I use daily with Linux.

    (just throwing more fuel on the fire :-D ...)

    I don't see any of those, but that's because I am using Eternal September.

    If you are having problems skipping through the junk, you can either wait
    a month for it to stop, or switch to using Eternal September.

    I can't read them since I do not get them (from Eternal September).
    What I wrote about was the other SPAM posts about UNIX and Linux.

    I have been here on c.o.v for something like 30+ years.
    I do not remember seeing your name for, well, is it a full year?

    Jan-Erik.

    Perhaps that's because VMS is so complete and reliable, there
    is no longer anything to discuss about it ?.

    Continued exposure to new ideas helps to guard against the
    "hardening of the attitudes", as we all get a bit older, and
    a bit more wrinkly :-).

    Have a great new year...

    Never satisfied, are you? Now you are complaining about not seeing spam, whereas before you were complaining about seeing it.

    Maybe you are on the wrong USENET plan? Maybe you need to contact your
    USENET provider about moving onto a plan that better suits your needs? Or
    if they can’t offer you one, move onto another, more appropriate USENET altogether?

    What a complete piece of shit you are...

    I have been working my whole professional life, every single day
    for over 40 years now, with VMS and I cannot see any more appropiate
    group than c.o.v.

    I'm just asking that this group could stick to VMS.

    people who're excited to get rid of some older hardware.

    I've been told writing drivers for OpemVMS/x86 is an insane process!
