The VAX is a failure, just like the Ford Model T is a failure...

Once they stopped building a computer called VAX, it became a 'failure'.

In related news (sort of) I was at a used book store this afternoon and found
a copy of a book called "Getting Started with OpenVMS" - I almost bought it,
though I never ran OpenVMS on any machine I've ever owned, but stopped when I
saw they wanted $24.95 for it.

I went looking for a link with of the description of the book and found that
Amazon wants $60+ for the book!
