Paper Abstract

Although the VST telescope control software is based on the heritage of the other ESO telescopes, there is almost no module which has not been, at least, customized for its specific system. This paper reviews the lessons learned during the telescope commissioning in terms of advantages and disadvantages coming from the reuse of the VLT and ATs software.
