For background, here are a few selected timeline items:
?/1967 ITS design starts
7/67 ITS first becomes operational
12/67 Multics single process boot on 645
10/68 Initial Multics milestone (8 users)
01/69 Limited Initial Multics milestone (12 users)
04/69 Bell Labs drops out of Multics
(I included the latter since I'm assuming the "time Unix arose" is after the
Bell Labs departure.)
Note: I'm not saying or implying anything about the 3 systems with this; this
is purely data.
