CTIX <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convergent_Technologies> is 1982,
not the 1987 shown on the chart. I was running CTIX in 1984 and still

OSF/1 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tru64_UNIX> was 1992 not 1990 as
shown on the chart. I had one of the very first DEC Alpha systems with

Apple A/UX <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A/UX> was 1988 and not 1985-86
as shown on the chart. I had one and it's one reason I dislike Apple.
