The zx6000 is in many cases (read: there are exceptions) practically an rx2600. Some zx6000 systems, probably the earlier ones, have certain limitations (in terms of maximum amount of RAM). Though, I wouldn’t be able to tell from experience, since I never owned one. I know someone who owns a zx6000, the most noteworthy thing I was told was that they don’t come with iLO/MP cards. (Although I’m not sure, I think that a zx6000 should be able to accommodate one.)
What is interesting, is that OpenVMS recognizes the zx6000 as an “[FONT=“Courier New”]HP zx6000[/FONT]” (when you invoke, e.g.: “[FONT=“Courier New”]$ SHOW SYSTEM /NOPROCESSES /FULL[/FONT]”), even though HP never marketed the zx6000 as an OpenVMS system, nor ever ‘officially’ supported it. But yes, it very much runs it and works fine.
