operating system (CTSS) One of the earliest (1963)
experiments in the design of interactive time-sharing
operating systems. CTSS was ancestral to Multics, Unix,
and ITS. It was developed at the MIT Computation Center
by a team led by Fernando J. Corbato. CTSS ran on a modified
IBM 7094 with a second 32K-word bank of memory, using two
2301 drums for swapping. Remote access was provided to up
connected to dial-up modems.
