The hobbyist program is quite good. I'm trying to teach myself VMS right
now on my rescued DEC 3000, and for $30 I got OpenVMS 7.3-1, the C and
FORTRAN compilers, DECwindows, and UCX (which I replaced with TCPware,
which is free with a hobbyist license, as is MultiNet).

And since you'll be getting the VAX kit, you'll get many more layered
products on the hobbyist CD than I did with the Alpha CD.

Of course, I first received my DECUS number back in early July, but the
hobbyist website didn't start accepting it until a few weeks ago. YMMV.
