Contrarywise, DEC developed most of the Operating Systems for their hardware (PDP, VAX, Alpha), as did IBM (mainframes) -- just not a consumer-grade OS. Those Operating Systems don't run on hardware it wasn't developed for and you can't just go to a store and buy parts to assemble a compatible system.


On the other hand, there are rumors that HP may release a version of OpenVMS that runs natively on x86, but lacking that there are emulators.
