interesting points to note that the chief developer on the Windows NT team also ws responsible for the creation of VMS for DEC.
now VMS is one letter removed from WNT (windows NT)
IN 2001 space odyssey HAL is one letter removed from its vendor IBM.
now i know the whole IT world is full of TLA's (3 letter acronyms) but is this all just coincidence ? is there a conspiracy ? i doubt it, i just wondered if anyone new any more about these conincidences and any others out there in IT.
