While cruising olduse.net I came across this puzzling entry in net.general
Department of Computer Engineering and Science
Case Western Reserve University
We would like to announce our connection to Usenet. We are a
private university located in Cleveland, vacation spot of the midwest.
The department's primary facilities consist of:
VAX 11/780: hardware: RM05's, TU77, DZ-11, DH-11 (able), 2.5 Mbytes.
software: 4.1 BSD
PDP 11/45: hardware: RM02, DS330 (RP04), RK05, RX02, RS04(solid
cache45 (able), DH-11
software: UNIX V 6.9999999
What is UNIX V 6.9999999?? I suspect it's v6 with a bunch of patches, but
not quite v7? I've seen from some Russian stuff that they prefered v6 on
pdp-11's as it "ran faster" than v7 and needed far less ram/disk space... I
know it's 30 years too late to ask them what it is but I figure someone may
have actually ran/used 6.9999999...
