Itanium is the name that is used in comp.os.vms and comp.sys.dec,
though Itanic is
popular in certain circles too.
The operating system runs in te same version on two platforms. VMS
V8.2 and upwards
runs on Alpha and Itanium hardware.
New developments on the os are pretty rare these days, when they
happen they occur on
both distributions. VAX/VMS stopped its development at V7.3.
The prefix open is not voiced... Only marketing folks do pronounce
