scuse me but the first Unix I saw was running on a PDP-8. It might have
originated on a PDP-6. Unix was written in C from the start according to
all the documentation I have read. Also, I saw Unix running on PDP systems
before the /34 was ever produced. This includes the 11/24 and 11/70.
Probably the best Unix installation I ever saw was a dual /44 system in
1984. It was the first HA system I ever worked with. It had the beginnings
of what we now call RAID.
