AOS and then AOS/VS for the Eclipse.  In the late 1980s and early 1990s
I messed a whole lot with AOS/VS at the university I was at.  It was
very much Not Unix.  Towards the end of my time there, a number of
programs that traditionally would be on a Unix system, things like
sendmail, ftpd, and etc.. were natively ported to AOS/VS.  The ports
were probably done as best as they could have been, but they lacked a
whole lot of ability if I remember things correctly.

After I left, the university acquired a DG of some sort that ran DG-UX
(or DGUX).
