In a BSTJ article[1] it is said "The availability of a simulated UNIX operating system in DMERT allows UNIX programs from other processors to execute on the 3B20D Processor."  Does this just mean C programs which are rebuilt or is there some implication DMERT's particular UNIX environment featured some sort of emulation facilities?  I may be reading too much into it...

P.S. I learned I may walk past DMERT and a 3B20D most days, there's a long-operational telephone CO on my usual walk that through referencing public records I've discovered has a WECo 5ESS up in it somewhere.  That's all the listing said, dunno if WECo is given as meaning an early model or just a generic name.  Either way...so close yet so far, makes me ever so curious what dusty old bookshelves in that building might hold.
