Hello, my name is Brian. I'm a retired software engineer/executive and in my retirement I'm a junkie for resurrecting old vintage computer hardware and operating systems. I have ZERO experience with VMS, although it's always been on my list to learn. I like hardware as much as software, so I have my eye on a couple of different Alphastations for sale and will probably buy one shortly. I stumbled on this site when I went looking for information on getting VMS, since the Alphastations I'm looking at aren't clear as to what OS they have, if any. Although most probably feel that newer-is-better I will want to install the earliest version of VMS that supported the hardware I eventually get, since I want that vintage feel. I hope something in the 6.x or 7.x range is still available. I signed up for DECUS membership and then followed the instructions for requesting information from HPE. This site/forum as really helped me in the few hours since I discovered it. Thank you in advance for all the people that will surely roll their eyes at some dumb question I ask but are kind enough to help me anyway. -Brian
