Unix Seventh Edition
Example V7 session
|Architecture:||PDP-11, Interdata 8/32|
This was the last research version to leave Bell Labs. This also proved to be quite a portable version. Unix v7 was also one of the first operating systems to ship with a Fortran 77 compiler.
These are the known platforms to run Unix v7
the PDP-11 was the primary platform which Unix v7 was written on. All other v7's can trace themselves back to this version.
The Interdata 8/32 was the first port to a 32 bit platform outside of Bell Labs.
The IBM PC port was done by Microsoft however they resold it to various other OEM's under the name Xenix. Eventually SCO bought the rights & the Microsoft division responsable for Xenix, along with a deal giving Microsoft a portion of all SCO sales.
A separate project aims to port V7 to the 80386 native, V7/x86.
v7 has been ported to the 386, information can be found http://www.nordier.com/v7x86/index.html.
