A complete condist (consolidated distribution) for VMS 7.0 is, I believe,
12 disks.

If you get the hobbyist CD's through the OpenVMS hobbyist program
( ) the "layered product" CD that comes with it
is a "best of" from all the condist CD's, carrying what someone thought
a hobbyist would be most likely to want. Many of the compilers are there.
