English Dictionary: VMS by the DICT Development Group
2 results for VMS
From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   VMS /V-M-S/ n.   {DEC}'s proprietary operating system for its
   VAX minicomputer; one of the seven or so environments that loom
   largest in hacker folklore.   Many Unix fans generously concede that
   VMS would probably be the hacker's favorite commercial OS if Unix
   didn't exist; though true, this makes VMS fans furious.   One major
   hacker gripe with VMS concerns its slowness -- thus the following
   limerick:
  
         There once was a system called VMS
         Of cycles by no means abstemious.
                  It's chock-full of hacks
                  And runs on a VAX
         And makes my poor stomach all squeamious.
                                                            --- The Great Quux
  
   See also {VAX}, {{TOPS-10}}, {{TOPS-20}}, {{Unix}}, {runic}.
  
  

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   VMS
  
      {Virtual Memory System}
