Well I got this yesterday... and man I have to say I am now a true
believe in all things VAX. I was reading through the architecture
stuff alone and there is stuff in there that Linux is just now trying
to add. (re: a recent Linux Journal article on events based kernel
scheduling for Telecom and real-time applications)... and this book is
a VAX book from 1982. Preemptive multi-tasking, demand paged virtual
memory, etc. etc. etc.
Very nice stuff.... only problem is ... now I want one..... and they
use way too much juice... somehow my dumpster dived Vaxstation just
doesn't seem like it's gonna cut it.
Methinks a 4000/90 would be good.
