In Wired magazine, issue 18.11, there are a few mentions of Ticketmaster’s “old” system. Some looks at job sites like monster.com over the years shows that Ticketmaster is always looking for people with VAX and VMS talent. Could that be the “old” system that Wired refers to?
Funny, that “old” system withstands the assault of millions of people trying to buy tickets all at the same time. No other system has emerged that can handle that load — many have tried, all have failed.
As I’ve said before, “legacy” means “stuff that just works”. That’s VMS!
