The 3000's ran MPE (or as we called it Mighty Poor Excuse). I had an HP/UX

The hardware was the same only for PA-RISC based machines (i.e.
HP-9000 800 series and later, not the 200/300/400 series based on
the Motorola 68k nor the older 500 series based on a proprietary

with them in my later job when the newer systems came out).
But I'm trying to remember a pre-X windowing system and can't think of it.
The later HP/UX had an their own proprietary
Motif-based window manager.
If I remember correctly, the switch from HP-Windows to X-Window on
HP 9000/300 and /800 series (X10, not X11 at this time) occurred
around 1987 or 1988.
