=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Oh don't worry, OpenVMS has a future. In the military. On JSTARS. Our Systems uses OpenVMS

=============================================================== From: Tom Wilson ------------------------------------------------------

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ And I was considering buying an AlphaServer to try out OpenVMS! HP's user group has a program to get free non-commercial licenses for Tru64 and OpenVMS if you pay for membership in the group (it's like $20 or $45 a year or something) Guess I missed the boat.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Don't let this stop you... they truly are beautiful machines. And if it had a DEC/Digital Badge on it, every trace was hand-drawn. Orrrrrr, you could sign up for a free DECUServe[1] subscription which will qualify you for the Hobbyist OpenVMS license[2]. I never could actually call it Tru64... the transition from OSF/1 to Digital UNIX was hard enough[3]. /salute Regards, dtb [1] - telnet://decuserve.org [2] - they only report member numbers weekly, no instant gratification [3] - Tru64 came after the memo from CPQ to DEC the morning after SEC approval of the merger. DEC died in that memo, quite literally. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (MingW32) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://www.enigmail.net/ iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJRtp8iAAoJEMP+wtEOVbcda/kIAKawIQfyp5s9fwJsyPUuMXZ7 r+0/oprmWbunQw3ZeA33azcwTp5MsF5aTomaLoKMzFvCvjyHofap1SMiP4FnfHAk dLLPugbrwkw6VpwXaUJJcsP3cUNBU3GNxK1EDZfossTzv+BKhFBE1oTwj7oE3kbv sGK7iyV9JPSe+tooIrQC61oQc5BwU+IlrzUcfth/NXDIR4dVlDPGA29wYCcvMvXJ 6yimOii1Q+LNLpTgvCNn1SrwiuNR0D6VApOnoMAqBG8UzDt+/uVNb88T2jF1KHER JBnZNIWDMBI1ll0SbwhRVecI2UejAxrKMIvz3syulx5BD3dAROnvcSi0ItD2Qkw= =v07y -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ 1) you don't have to buy physical hardware to run openvms 2) maybe things have changed, but 10 years ago when I got my openvms hobbyi= st license, it didn't cost anything --- On Mon, 6/10/13, Alex Smith (K4RNT) wrote: From: Alex Smith (K4RNT) Subject: Re: [Chugalug] OpenVMS Funeral announced To: "Chattanooga Unix Gnu Android Linux Users Group" Date: Monday, June 10, 2013, 10:44 PM And I was considering buying an AlphaServer to try out OpenVMS!

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ The cost I was referring to in my post was for the system itself - an AlphaServer DS10L costs $300 (!) I went ahead and joined DECUserve, I might just use their host to mess around on. :) r
