Thread: UNIX for Classic

  1. #1

    Question UNIX for Classic

    Is anyone running Unix on their vintage machine? If so what flavor, is it available for others?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I'm running Xenix on my Tandy 6000's. If you have a 6000 you can make your own install.

    I'm running SCO Unix on a couple of boxes. I wouldn't copy that for anyone.

    I'm running a couple of different versions of Solaris. If you have the hardware you can usually find the software.

    I've got Coherent, but it is not currently running. This is available for download.

    I've got Microport Xenix somewhere but it is not running. Not even sure the disks still work.

    I have A/UX but I haven't installed it anywhere.

    As far as vintage systems go, I have A/UX on my Macintosh IIfx, and I'm going to install it on my SE/30 whenever I get around to it.

    Semi Vintage/Semi Unix Would be my Compaq Presario 1210 dual booting Windows 98 and Damn Small Linux 4.

    Non-Vintage I have a P-III with Solaris 10.

    Fifth, sixth and seventh edition UNIX and 2.11BSD on PDP-11, tried NetBSD on a MicroVAX too. Is there a particular machine you're hoping to run some kind of UNIX on?

    I've got a 286 Z-200, with 2.5 megs of RAM.

    I love Solaris 8. Took me a bit of getting used to, but when I got it I loved it.

    FreeBSD on my 486.

    I'd love a HP-UX box though (although it doesn't seem the most flawless UNIX I heard)
