I come from Athens, Greece. I have a beloved Alphaserver 1000A/266 which I got from a recycling program. Although I come from a *nix background, VMS (and its successor OpenVMS) always fascinated me for a reason. Guess its that 'Big Iron' charm ;-).
I have applied to get an ALPHA license from the site 5 months ago (www.openvmshobbyist.com) but haven't heard from them at all. I even sent two emails, but no reply. I have registered in EncompassUS and have a valid ID.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
