I may be inheriting an Alpha from work shortly and have a few questions.

I saw previously (a few years ago) that HP was offering Tru64 UNIX for a discounted price for non-commercial use for $99.00. Is this program still available?

I'm interested also in purchasing a second Alpha and running both Tru64 and OpenVMS.

Any thoughts?

BTW, the system at work is a DEC Personal Workstation (can't remember the exact model).

you can run both. They use the same SRM firmware.
They use different boot flags
usuall -flags a,0 for unix and usually -flags 0,0 for vms

My main question was regarding the Tru64 Non-Commercial license program. Is this licensing program still available?

[quote:f3a557fc43="Stephen Hoffman"]Wander over there, select non-commercial unix from the list, and ask nicely? (And let us know?)[/quote:f3a557fc43]
Apparently for one person from Nekochan forum it did work. It didn't work for me though... but that's completely other story, and it's not HP bashing forum (but you do know from my post from C.S.D smiley )

Update to my previous post: I have contacted HP about Tru64 and got a very positive answer:
[quote:a6477aa97e]Unfortunately, we discontinued the non-commercial media kit. Therefore,
I cannot provide you with a V4.0 non-commercial kit. However, I may be
able to have a V5.1B-4 media kit sent to you along with a non-commercial
license. Send me your mailing address and I will see what I can do.

I paid nothing (except 22% of declared value as import tax), used Tru64 feedback form to ask, then Product Planner got back to me and that was it.

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?
