    Default Can a Rainbow be used as a bridge machine for other RX50 DECs

    Hello Folks,

    I am in the process of picking up a DECMATE 3 but it has no floppies.

    I don't currently have a PC bridge machine but I do have a Rainbow.

    Can the Rainbow read and write floppies that could be used on the DECMATE or come to think of it, a PDP-11 with RX50?


    Thanks,

    Andy.

    Short answer: In theory, yes.
    Long answer: it depends

    Thank you Chuck.

    I hadn't spotted that one. It certainly makes interesting reading.


    Cheers,

    Andy.
