Hello, everyone...

I always wanted to get my own VMS system running but could never swing the hardware... and now, what with SIMH and some Linux variant, it seems I might have a dream come true. Is it too much to ask!? smiley

So, to some background info about me:

'Computing' enthusiast since ~1972 (I bought my first slide rule then!), calculators (programmable) since 1977, also discovered PCs about this time. Programming in BASIC, FORTRAN for uni and beyond. System Manager for multiple VAX/VMS systems 1986 through 1995. SysAdmin for Unix and WinNT systems 1995 through 1997. Programming in C since 1989, perl since 1995. (Simple) Palm development since 2000 or so. WinXP still bugs me :lol:

As far as VMS is concerned, it all started in ~1979 when I first used an old teletype printing terminal connected to a PDP-11 at university (well, not really VMS I guess but anyhoo...). Then, it was using a VAX 11/750 at work... and onwards and upwards on the system management side. VAX 8650, 8250, 62xx, 63xx, VAXstations 2000 and 3100, MicroVAX II. Outsourcings led to no more system management but some minimal use of Alphas and that was it. We have a couple of Alphas at work now but they're on the way out. Heck! I'm gonna miss VMS...

...unless I can get VMS working on one of my PCs! SIMH/Linux here I come... Can't wait to get back into RTL, system calls and searching through .REQ files smiley

Laterz, all...

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

It would be nice to be able to buy the lastest hardcopy full OpenVMS docset at a very reduced price through the Hobbyist program. smiley

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
