Logging into a SYSIII system
|Creator:||Bell Labs / AT&T / Western Electric|
|Architecture:||VAX, PDP11 probably others|
|This Version:||1.0 (1982)|
SYSIII was the first commercial release of UNIX by AT&T. The 32bit version was based on 32v while the 16bit version was based on Seventh Edition Unix.
I don't think this version saw widespread adoptation, compared to the BSD's.
Besides Xenix, was there any other adoptions of SYSIII??
How do I get this to run?!
Right now, you don't. SYSIII is still copyrited. At one point SCO sold legacy licenses for $100 USD, and I did purchase one, but this is not free, nor abandonware.
SIMH cannot run the boot tape fully, however I was able to find someone on the list who managed to hack together a working system! The DZ controller doesn't work so it's not fully multiuser. However I've been able to use the system somewhat, if not only for checking various system stuff out.
I haven't tried to port any software to SYS III as I don't think there really is any installations still in existence.
