About NetBSD/vax

NetBSD/vax is the port of NetBSD to DEC VAX computers. The first model was announced in 1977 and they were sold until September 30, 2000! NetBSD/vax was the first free OS that ran on the VAX series of computers, and by far runs on the largest number of models.

Development activity on NetBSD/vax continues at a speed depending of people's spare time. NetBSD runs on most of the common desktop systems and also on some of the more unusual older systems such as the large-scale 11/780 and 8600.
