As a point of historical coincidence, you know that significant design
features of the Eclipse were inspired by the VAX architecture, right?
Apparently one of the DG designers dressed up in orange coveralls, took
a toolbox with him, went to a site that had a VAX, walked in and opened
up the machine pretending to be a service technician, and just sat there
poking through its innards for several hours to see how it worked.
