Where should the type information be: in tags and descriptors 438
No, I'm not talking about chronological age but DECage. Until you know how the work evolved, you can't identify why things were done, who did those things or why certain decisions were made. You were trained in an enviroment which had the unspoken rule that 36-bits was a swear. It isn't possible for you to undo all that embedded programming without a lot of work.

Want the long list or the short one? Here are some that I know about for certain, various time frames from 1960 to...
No, it wasn't. ANF-10 predated DECnet and provided most of the Phase IV functionality in the latter 1970s.
It's 30 years, honey. You should ask yourself why I am spending the little energy and time I have talking about this. I was trained and worked with the best. TOPS-10 types don't waste their time.
Where do you see me bashing the OS? This is very typical of the psychology of the group. If the company has a problem, blame TOPS-10.
But that's all VMS was!! It had a niche. This atbreastude that DEC had to supply PCitis is bullpoo. I'm getting pretty fed up with the atbreastude that "if it ain't a PC, it ain't a computer". This is precisely what Misoft has been marketing and apparently it's worked too well.
The mini business might have been famous for it. TOPS-10 was not.
