Do special recent word takes plurals?
Is the plural for:
gameboy->gamboys or just gameboy
walkman--> walkmen or walkmans
Nintendo Wii--> Wii's or Wii
Nintendo DS> DS or DS' or DS's
PS3> PS3's or PS
stylus> styli or styluses
I think the same would apply to most of your list - all except 'stylus'; and I'm with Casi on that one.
If the name was VAX, than the plural would certainly have to be VAXes.
A consonant cluster /ks/ - X.
So VAXs would be wrong (vekss), and the right form would be VAXes (veksiz).
Correct me if I'm wrong. Note that I'm sleepy!

Not according to the DEC lawyers. Or the in-house style guide based on their advice.
The rest of your post doesn't make any sense to me; who mentioned an e? Am I missing something? I'm tired too...
It is, though an imperfect one - Virtual Address eXtension. There's another sort, with the slogan 'Nothing sucks like a VAX'.
