30439RE: [midatlanticretro] Unibus or Q-Bus Systems?
- May 3, 2013I was referring to machines SOLD by AT&T. They "Always" ran UNIX.
I would love to hear of a documented case of them selling a 3B2 with any other OS installed.

Mostly. AT&T pushed the WE32K CPUs for embedded applications for a
short while in the 1980s. We had a dev board for it where I worked
(Princeton)...a dev board that I really, really wish I had now.
Anyway, they had some sort of a real-time executive that ran on it,
that was prototyped on, and development for it occurred on, 3B2/310
Admittedly that's a rare case, but you said the magic word "always",
which, in this business, virtually guarantees someone will speak up. ;)
