At one point, there appears to have been a fairly complete set of office software available for use on VAX/VMS workstations. DECwrite, which was probably the most widely installed of these, is licensed through the hobby program, though obtaining a copy of DECwrite (along with a version of VMS that can run it) is an exercise left up to the hobbyist seeking to run it. I'm managed to get a copy of DECwrite 1.1 (to go along with my VMS 5.5-2 install). My question is who owns the rest of this stuff. I'd be VERY interested in getting DECdecision (an apparently excellent spreadsheet and database access program) up and running, but I don't know who to ask about accquiring a license. I have the install sets from the same source as DECwrite 1.1, but I'd love to know who owns it these days!
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.
