Big Gray Wall


n. What faces a VMS user searching for documentation. A full VMS kit comes on a pallet, the documentation taking up around 15 feet of shelf space before the addition of layered products such as compilers, databases, multivendor networking, and programming tools.

Since VMS version 5 DEC documentation comes with gray binders; under VMS version 4 the binders were orange ('big orange wall'), and under version 3 they were blue.

See VMS.
