I'm an italian CS student with an interest in Operating Systems, and I just found out about the OpenVMS Hobbyist program. I think this is a rare opportunity for us to get to know how real OSes worked - and in this case still do :-)
That said, our local DECUS chapter has been dead for years, so I joined HP Connect at Guest-level membership about two weeks ago, but I still haven't got my membership number.
I also tried to contact them using their form but to no avail.
Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
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.
nmbonao December 08 2017 Is anybody knows OpenVMS 8.2 version downloadable version? or CD copy? Thank you very much

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?
