AFAIK Intel never wrote an OS and only implemented a few language compilers on their hardware.

I really was wondering about the insistence on an argument of VAX vis a vis VMS -- it seems to me moot as one didn't exist w/o the other and VMS simply came at a time the various languages already existed in a place where folks recognized there was a need/market/opportunity to support them all and had a new product to incorporate that support into.
