Nice story... I have a MT modem here. When I called MT support about a year
(maybe more) they asked me what OS I was using to talk to the modem. When I
mentioned VMS, I was told that it was not a supported operating system and I
was subsequently told that they would not/could not provide me any support.
Yeap, another good company assimilated into the "we must defend that Redmond
Company at all costs even to the detriment of our own" mindset.
