FreeVMS seems to be dead. The page hasn't been updated since 2003. I
downloaded their stuff and tried to boot it, but it got a kernel panic
under qemu. Anyway, I'd much prefer to see a *port* of VMS rather than
a VMS work-alike built on the Linux kernel (which FreeVMS certainly
seems to be, what with all the kernel boot messages... I know what a
VMS boot looks like, and it ain't that.)
