The article states that executables have to be on SYS:. This is incorrect. They can be on any device. However, the build-in command "R" requires that the executable be on SYS:, but there is also "RUN", which includes the device name in the name of the executable to run.

The article also mentions that RTS/8 allows for a virtual OS/8 instance, which is correct. However, it only allows for *one* such instance, so it's not possible for multiple users to have their own OS/8 instances using RTS/8. But there are non-DEC OSes for the PDP-8 that give each user their own virtual PDP-8 running OS/8. For example Multos-8. --Bqt (talk) 18:53, 27 October 2022 (CEST)

Well, I know little of OS/8; I expect you're correct. Any chance you could fix these issues? If so, 'thank you' in advance! Jnc (talk) 22:49, 27 October 2022 (CEST)
Sure can do. I just don't want to go *too* wild. --Bqt (talk) 01:25, 28 October 2022 (CEST)
