I thought I'd just introduce myself - I'm Chris, a hobbyist from Sydney, Australia.
I'm only just getting started out of a personal interest in operating system design and OpenVMS's rather convincing reputation.
I currently have only had AlphaVMS running under a emulator, but plan to spend some time learning with ropes with VMS on a real Alpha soon, and hope to get it running on my Integrity box at some point.
Kuroneko, one of the important differences between OpenVMS and other commonly available operating systems is it's design. Do see if you can acquire a copy of VMS Internals and Data Structures. It's a revelation :-)
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?
