Surely a Made in Nashua version is best for old Hardware? When did the bloat begin?

VMS 6.2 likely fits the bill as long as you don't care about web enabled features.

So far there are no versions of VAX/VMS that were not made primarily in Nashua.

I have had no problems running VAX/VMS 7.3 on MicroVAX II systems. Have been meaning to try to see if a MicroVAX I will boot it.

Thanks for the 6.2 recommendation. Do licence PAKS work with all versions?

As far as I know the Hobby license PAKs work with all versions of VMS that take license keys.

I do not know if any one has tried the early V5.x releases.

There is a TK50 of VMS 6 on ebay. What do I loose in V6 vs V6.2?

All the bug fixes. TK50 drives are also a bit unreliable.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
