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.
