I also worked with LSX - a stripped down version of Unix that required no MMU. It worked on a PDP 11/03 and we delivered an LSX product to the telco's based on LSX. My faulty memory tells me Mike Lesk created LSX. Is that true?

Did BTL/AT&T ever try to sell LSX to IBM for its 1981 intro of the IBM PC?

*all* the stuff? Please don't do that literally. The garrulity
quotient of info pages dwarfs even that of the most excessive
modern man pages. But I appplaud the intent to assure man
pages are complete.
