Multics

  1. If anyone actually knows what this is I'll be a bit surprised.

    I'm looking for the file for Multics Operating System. Yes it's a bit old, but I wanna play around with it and it's nice to own a piece of computing history....that can probably fit on my flash drive easy.

    Uhm.. And which computer would you run it on? Or do you have a 1970s mainframe in your basement? With USB ports???

    you might recall that it's 8086 based (or was) and about the vintage as VMS and MUMPS.

    consider it DOA.

    What feature were you interested in?

    I think it would be fun just to see how it works, what methods they went through just to make it work back then and how efficient it is.

    I also want to make a copy of it and tinker around with it.

    And I may have found an emulator that would let me run it.
