I have a WNT Alpha box (i.e. cardboard with CD and
docs inside) in
view as I type this. PPC also had an NT port. I'm not sure the MIPS
one ever made it out of Redmond, but it did supposedly exist.
Note that those are all 32-bit or 64-bit platforms and the PDP-11
was only 16 bits.
I fail to see what Windows NT has to do with anything. OS/2 was originally
16-bit, and ran on the 80286.
I believe the first version or two of Windows NT shipped with x86, Alpha,
PPC, and MIPS hardware support (at least I think those were the 4 listed
architectures). Somewhere I should have a box that says it supports all 4.
I guess an MS-DOS or OS/2 port to the PDP-11 would be
possible, possibly even feasible.
I very much doubt that it ever crossed anyone's mind to even try:
the PDP-11 was dead well before OS/2 was ever thought of. OK, the
last DEC PDP-11s were announced in the early 1990s and Mentec carried
on for a while beyond then, but who in their right mind would
consider porting OS/2 to the PDP-11 at that stage?
From Wikipedia, development of OS/2 started in 1985,
and V1.0 was released
in Decmember of 1987. This pretty much agree's with what
I remember from
that timeframe. As V1.0 was text based, and 16-bit, it is possible that a
PDP-11 port could have existed.
Please note, I am not saying that this is OS/2 for the PDP-11, just that
such a port would have been possible in that time frame. I can't see why
such a port would have been done.
On a related note oddly enough at least a partial port of CP/M-68k to the
MicroVAX 2000 exists. I believe one of the list members is the one that has
