OpenVMS Community License Program

Post by ajbrehm » Wed Apr 22, 2020 10:07 am

As it says on the News page.

That's good news!

OpenVMS cannot just exist, it must also be visible. And visibility requires a) support of normal hardware and b) availability.

In my opinion this ranks with choosing Visual Studio Code as a developer tool as one of the decisions that makes OpenVMS usable for the non-VMS community.

Just a question: Where to get media (AXP, I64) since VSI closed the FTP site and I cannot locate the kits on the new platform...

The FTP sites I got with my license still work for me. I just logged into both the Alpha and Integrity sites. It was only the Open source kits site they closed.
