New Tru64 media

Unread postby Elf » Thu Oct 27, 2016 7:48 pm

I came across this on eBay and ordered one for myself: http://www.ebay.com/itm/350722713534

It has new in box Tru64 3.2 / 4.0. It was fun seeing the DECUS membership pamphlet inside and stuff like "send in this card for a free Digital UNIX T-shirt."

I don't know how rare (or not) these are but I thought someone else might be interested as well.

Yeah, that's really cool. Digital Unix was an exceptional implementation, I used 3.2C back in the day.
I'd consider a purchase but $90 shipping to the UK is a bit steep!

Cheers, Mark.

i've been watching that for a while hoping the price would come down, it's way too much to ask imo. can you rip/post the 4.0 set somewhere? it's actually really important to have that available to run the genera lisp-machine emulator and that version doesnt seem to exist in the wild. afaik it's not piracy since it's not offered or supported anymore and there are hobbyist licenses available for it from back when it was still offered.
