- Right. I have collected all information I have found on each of the classical ITS machines here: , but I figured it was too much for this page. User:Larsbrinkhoff 18:14, 14 December 2017 (CET)

- Well, the planning for Multics I believe started first; 1964 or so (the timeline on the Multicians site doesn't give the exact date, but they selected GE in 1964, so it was certainly underway then). The first boot of a Multics came in December '67. As for ITs,the AI Lab history, "A Marriage of Convenience: The Founding of the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory" implies that it was started, and finished, sometime in '67, on a PDP-6 already owned by the Lab, but no specific date is given.
