I have to run an Alpha server GS80 and I need to know which operating system is best to use
So what are the advantages of use OpenVMS? Is better use OpenVMs Tru64 or Linux?

Linux: Various Flavours, but few ports to Alpha still maintained. You'd need to check that any specific Linux Distribution that claimed 'alpha' actually supported a GS80/Wildfire class machine. Most (all?) of the *BSD Un*x flavours don't support Wildfire.
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.
