Segin, now you're trolling. Do you suspect that we can't list the shortcomings of VAX just as easily as the shortcomings
of x86? They pulled alot over from the PDP-11 that should have been reimplemented for a 32-bit arch...

On the positive side, what is the most perfect computer architecture + implementation people have come across here?
Tell us why, especially if it's something like PERQ or Acorn RISC/pc that is not common outside of a limited geographic area.
