Not only is it limited to emulators, but it's also limited to emulators
owned by DEC. The actual verbage in the license is:

"EMULATOR shall mean software owned by Digital Equipment Corporation that
emulates the operation of a PDP-11 processor and allows PDP-11 programs and
operating systems to run on non-PDP-11 systems."

It's commonly accepted that this means SIMH, as Bob Supnik was a DEC VP at the
time. You can see the complete license at my website:

There is a Hobbyist License in the works that would allow certain versions
of the OS's that Mentec has to be run on real hardware. Some unfortunate
circumstances have held it up though.
