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.

Yes, I know. That's what I was referring to.

My question is what this license covers. The good-old DEC/Compaq/HP(E) version covers almost everything (Encryption excluded).There is no information on this. And if I read the EULA correctly, you can use it on one machine at a time: that means that you cannot run a cluster, and you are nit able to develop (and test_ cluster-aware software. Second, in my case, would render the configuration useless since most development files are on MSCP-served disks while most systems have too little room on theirs.)

Since you have the license - no matter how useful - you still need the software. How to get this?
