A simulator. Originally running Multics release 12.5, but a dedicated team
of new and original Multicians have completed the Y2K transition, fixed
some bugs and added some features, so now running release 12.6f.

All of the original systems are believed to be destroyed with the exception
of DOCKMASTER (an NSA machine), now in possession of the National
Cryptographic Museum, but warehoused.

panel) booting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jni7wk7bjxA

At least one of the new Multicians (me) is subscribed to TUHS.
