A 715 will run HP-UX 11.x as well, since it has the LASI chipset, according to 
openpa.net. I use HP-UX 11.00 on my 712s; it's quite slow compared to 10.20 
(the 712/60 is the absolute oldest, slowest system that will still run 11.x), 
but it's worth it in my opinion to have recent security patches from HP, and 
stuff like HP's official OpenSSH binaries and newer freeware builds from the 
HP-UX porting center at connect.org.uk.

Apparently there used to be ways to get HP-UX media for free from HP, but not 
anymore. I had to buy 11.00 media on eBay.
