Betreff: [TUHS] The first PDP-7 running Unix

> In honor of the Unix 50 party tomorrow, I wrote an analysis of the
> available data to conclude the first PDP-7 that Ken and Dennis used to

> but if it's common place, please let me know.

> One surprise from the analysis: there was only one pdp-7 in the world that

> could have run the original v0 unix. It's the only one that had the RB09
>
> hard drive (though the asset list referenced in the article listed a RC09
