SYSIII & SYSV on the 3B2. V7 was kind of barren (just shell, not Bourne SH) if you
didn't have the BSD code compiled on there. The SYSIII & SYSV were more normal
(Bourne Shell & Ksh) but we still had a lot of BSDisms lurking about.
As you might guess, I now play a lot with Linux (gave my 3B2-310 to the
museum). It's still just unix underneath.
