I really hate this damned machine,
I wish that they would sell it.
It never does quite what I want,
But only what I tell it.
A very intelligent turtle
Found programming UNIX a hurdle
The system, you see,
Ran as slow as did he,
And that's not saying much for the turtle.
The VAX was developed by DEC.
Detractors assert it's a wreck.
IBM, CRAY and SUN
Are still working on one,
Hoping someone will buy from them yet.
