- The roadmap has lost all pretence of new versions or features.
- They can't even be bothered to port to the next gen Itanium.
- There is no official EOL for support on Itanium as yet.

here is a pointer to an HP press release 'HP Extends Support for OpenVMS through Year 2020' ...

I think I heard my first VMS EOL rumour in 1987. Since then I've seen NT and Tru64 actually go EOL. And Digital, come to that...
When the 5 year roadmaps first came out each was met with a 'Oh, VMS only has 5 years to live'. I think the first one was back in 1997.
As Mark Twain said, "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated".
If it can't be done with a VT220, who needs it?
