Failed only in the sense that the Labs withdrew from the project.
Honeywell, which bought out GE's computer division, sold Multics
systems, although I don't remember them being very successful.
The real mystery is what it's running on. Multics originally ran
on the GE/H 600(0) systems. I doubt any are still around. It's
probably a simulator but I've never heard of one for the H6000.
