Logging into a SYSIII system
|Creator:||Bell Labs / AT&T / Western Electric|
|Architecture:||VAX, PDP11 probably others|
|Current Version:||1.0 (1982)|
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.
Right now I can't seem to get more then 4 or 5 programs onto a disk before it corrupts.
