Seems this collaboration of like minded folks is growing (except MS refused to join)

With VMS being revamped, might be worth looking into to ensure the new stuff is heading towards where these folks are heading perhaps?

While the vision might be grand, it does show the constant desire to improve the IT industry across the board

Might be a forum upon which VMS can use to expound it's virtues as well as get a forward look into where this organisation believes IT needs to improve on?

These folks might want to review the following:

Building Dependable Systems: The OpenVMS Approach
http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04622599

Point being is that many of these concepts are simply best practices and therefore timeless.

p.s. document above is from 1994.
