You clearly have no clue what you are talking about.

WindowsNT is VMS. The VMS OS created to run on Dec Alpha CPUs. It was even better than most UNIXes.

And you have no clue either.

VMS was created for the (32 bit) VAX processor. Then, with the development of the Alpha processor, VMS was ported to that architecture and extended to 64 bit.

Cutler did some work on VMS, but his group's main focus was PRISM/MICA, and when that was cancelled he took his toys and went to MS

NT is DEFINITELY NOT VMS, and anyone who's worked with both will acknowledge that.
