You'd best make that MVS (or more commonly these days zOS). None of
the banks I've worked in have used VMS for critical systems. You often
get Tandem machines handling the ATM system but for the the critical
systems like Signature Imaging, Statements, CHAPS and BACS so so forth
you'll find a IBM mainframe (or clone) running zOS.

When one person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many
people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
