I did use something called "Mini-Unix" on a PDP-11/10, which was a single-
address space machine. It worked, sort of, but had some problems - like,
pipes were implemented as temporary files, so the shell broke things apart
into individual sequential commands... and printing with lpr generally
froze the machine up. There may have been later and better versions, though.
(This was around 76/77, as I recall).
