There is something about Quasijarus I can't get my fingers behind. The thing boots, runs, makes world and all, but I have this nagging feeling it is part of an elaborate prank.. Dugo 13:37, 3 October 2011 (PDT)

The whole one man IFCTF with custom compression but otherwise a 4.3 BSD system??

I think its historical significance was that it was the first complete 'tape' distribution that would run on SIMH.. maybe its not so much a hoax as he lost interest... VAXen in the wild are pretty rare these days, and hell it inspired me to track down the 4.x BSD stuff @ TUHS, so it wasn't all in vain. neozeed 08:40, 4 October 2011 (PDT)
