SubjectRe: [off-topic] Microsoft IP Stack

Nope. DEC machines, right, but neither VAX nor -11. First VAX
implementation was very likely the BSD one (ARPA grant to UCB was exactly
for that). *The* first implementation was on PDP-10. Either TENEX or
TOPS-20. With completely different API, BTW. Non-UNIX stack on VAXen is
seriously younger - ask Cutler for details. -11... Dunno. 2.10BSD seems to
be the first there. IIRC RT-11 never got that. Maybe RSX did, but I never
heard of such event.
