   Yes, an investigation might well find it is cheaper to migrate to=20
Linux, Windows, OS X Tiger, or some other platform.  Or it might not,=20
and might well find that migrating to a similar platform (and/or a newer

version) is the cheapest approach available.  Facts not in evidence.
----------------------------

Migrate was a poor use of words because VMS and the apps running on VMS
over VAX do not require migration to run on CHARON-VAX unlike efforts to
'migrate' the apps to Alpha or Itanic running VMS. =20

The other point that has been ignored was cost containment. If you move
to newer class machines (ie Alpha/Itanic), it'll most likely cost you
much more in software licensing/re-licensing than if you just stay on
the exact same sized machine (4000/100 class machine) that the software
was originally licensed for...

HP charges $1k to move VMS and $1k to move the layered products and
depending on how your 3rd party layered products license is written, it
may cost you nothing since it's the same workgroup class system...
