Well the view is more of the VMS is better among Vax fanatics, but
there's a $100 license from SCO for old Unix sources and that get
you access to the Unix Preservation Society's archives of
Berkeley Unix... or you can run the current version of NetBSD on most
Microvax systems.

It'll work fine. I'm going to use a serial line from a PC with
a vt100 emulator (kermit is the best one for VT100) or just a VT100
from my garage on the Vaxstation.

VT100 emulation's nice for the screen editor but ADM3A's will even work.
Vax consoles (IMHO) should probably be LA120's if you have em.

      Three things never anger: First, the one who runs your DEC,
      The one who does Field Service and the one who signs your check.
