re: [midatlanticretro] Unibus or Q-Bus Systems?
Not exactly. I am seriously thinking of bringing my PDP 11/40 to finally
fix the power supply, never got to it but I have the parts to repair it.
It's not a system that can run UNIX as it is now, but maybe some day.
On site (within MARCH collection) I don't think we have any functioning PDP
systems that run UNIX.
