I see Bitsavers has VMS V1.5. Is your RK07 image the only copy of V1.0? Larsbrinkhoff (talk) 08:55, 23 May 2022 (CEST)

No, there's also a tape image. As far as my weak memory serves me right it was Matt Burke who provided the tape image some time ago. I think it is not an image of a genuine tape but reconstructed from sources or a system backup, but it seems to be o.k., if not perfect. I made an RK07 image using this tape as to save the old VMS novice from the need of using DSC (Disk Save and Compress, the precursor of BACKUP). And there has been an RK07 distribution disk for small VAX-11/780 systems as stated in the installation manual AA-D021B-TE VAX-11 Software Installation Guide.
