I'll second this.  We switched from VMS to UNIX on an SGI about 2yrs ago, and
I've been very happy with it.  Unix makes it easier for me to write batches,
aliases, and other tricks to make it easier for the computer illiterate 
folks in the lab to use GCG.  As archane as GCG can be, it is now (finally) 
in general use in the lab, while under VMS the staff considered it unusable.
I don't know where it's easier to run as a sys-admin, but if the end users
can't use it on VMS, who cares?  My .02.
