I have to agree with Clem here. I ported multiple device drivers for custom boards to DG/UX and it was nicely done at the lower levels.

The documentation was excellent and the field service reps were more than helpful when I walked into strange corners that didn’t perfectly mesh between SunOS 4.X and DG/UX.
