Hey! My father still has a PDP-15/30, complete with core memory, 4
DECtape units, and a high speed punched paper tape reader, all in
a really tiny footprint of 4 full-height 19 inch racks, in his house.
It hasn't been turned on in over a decade, but doesn't deserve a Free
Unixlike OS of its own? :-)
