I haven't used a VS system myself, but if you want to get a flavor of what
it is
like, try running this Wang VS emulator:

It isn't a simple binary emulator; instead, the author is recreating the system
at the OS call level. The author has a 45 minute each way train commute, so
he has spent the last 8 years or something working on it in bits and pieces.
What a slog!

Anyway, it's something to get you going.
