Noooo! At least I just updated mine last week.

Huh. I guess it pays to read the e-mail that contained my licenses:
"
The HPE OpenVMS Hobbyist licenses we are issuing in 2020 will be the last set.
Subsequently, HPE will not issue new HPE OpenVMS Hobbyist licenses.
Users who wish to avail of HPE OpenVMS long term licenses are encouraged to purchase permanent licenses at standard prices.
"

Yeah, no, I'm not buying it.


They've announced the end of the Hobbyist Program before.
I don't think it really costs them anything to provide Hobbyist licenses.
