We've done some testing using Ubuntu 15.10 64-bit. Haven't had much success.

with a wineconsole open UI.exe gets errors
But the rest of the .EXEs run in wine cmd.

ReactOS 4 seems less stable than 3,

Win 2000 (NT5) does not have an MSI installer (vs XP(NT5.1))
The 32 bit NDIS 5 devices install

the first system32 .dll that UI wanted is not compatible with Win2k
There were also suggestions that .NET install/upgrades/SPs needed.

For anyone with 2x Host over PA cores needed has anyone run a
second instance? That's were a VMs Internal / Host-only 2nd NIC
might help with clustering? added +1 guest cpu for OS / net stack

working on a .CMD /.BAT with
START alpha -h <how to config>
START putty <config>

Alpha: Bad character --- <
Alpha: . . Tru64.cfg:1

? char position 1 ?

I thought it might be a UTF-8 support problem, but:

I searched the registry for the "Local Area Connection", binding

No marketing data to back it up, but my guess is that an emulator that only runs on Windows is missing over 1/2 of the commercial market for it.

Looks like it is not that far away from working, as a report on comp.os.vms was able to get it running with out networking on Wine.

For configuration on Linux, the libvirt API should be used. That makes the emulator manageable by standard cloud tools.

The libvirt API is also one of the standard ways of controlling Windows VMs, so would be useful to support network access to it on a Windows product.

Emulators that support the libvirt API look like just another VM in a private or even public cloud.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
