I was assuming that the basic intermal environment was sufficiently different
that not a lot of the OS-level code could carry over, but I guess not.

DId you actually work on RSTS-11 internals (I don't know your exact dates at
DEC), or did you just read the source?

And speaking of which, are any RSTS-11 sources still extant? I found the RSTS
directory on BitSavers, but it seems to have only manuals.
