VAXectomy

Computing Dictionary

VAXectomy definition

jargon
/vak-sek't*-mee/ (By analogy with "vasectomy") Removal of a VAX. DEC's Microvaxen, especially, are much slower than newer RISC-based workstations such as the SPARC. Thus, if one knows one has a replacement coming, VAX removal can be cause for celebration.
