I might be completely wrong, but I think some of the early UNIX
versions might "speak" 2741. But I'm not sure. Perhaps a sufficiently
"vintage" RSX-11 might as well?

Of course like Guy Sotomayor said, IBM mainframe operating systems can
speak 2741. OS/360 can, and I'm pretty sure so can MVS and VM/370 but
my IBM knowledge is somewhat limited.

Also, I really want one of those 2741s. Selectrics that can do I/O are
*bleep*ing cool.
