I'm a new OpenVMS user from Romania. For now, i do not own any DEC hardware, but I'm trying to get an Alpha or a VAX. Here DEC products are very, very little known and used so it's very hard to get one. Maybe someone can sell or donate me one that is not needed anymore.
Now I'm running OpenVMS 7.3 on simh and 7.3-2 on PersonalAlpha, with X display on a windows X server and I'm trying to find some layered products for Alpha (c, pascal, etc.).
I hope I can get an DEC computer very soon, to run OpenVMS at full speed on its native hardware.
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?
