First Boot of VMS on x86

VMS Software Inc. (VSI) is extremely pleased to announce OpenVMS First Boot on the x86 architecture. It has been a long journey and we will now be moving rapidly to the V9.0 Early Developer Kit and then to full system operation. There is still much more work to do before getting to a full production system for general customer release. With large areas of the operating system's internal capabilities now operational, we will be continually bringing up more components to round out the system in preparation for versions V9.1 and V9.2.


OpenVMS on x86 gives customers a path into the future with new versions of the operating system on industry-standard x86 hardware platforms and as a virtual machine guest on those systems. User applications, with extremely few exceptions, will compile, link, and run on x86 systems without modification.
