Wow = blast from the past!

Hopefully, not the only place from where I remember such! At various 
times, people have wondered how I was able to very quickly pick-up the 
commandLN of a 'new' OpSys, eg CP/M, PC-/MS-DOS, Linux. They are all so 
similar to RT-11 and RSTS (PDP-11 line), and thus VAX VMS!
