If your developing with RT-11 for a specific task then sysgening is
needed. If you need to run BASIC, DECUS-C, MicroPower Pascal, write
assembly code files or edit text then the stock monitor are just fine.

Sysgening to simply move to a different varient of PDP-11 cpu or disk
however is not required. The typical example of sysgening RT-11 I've
done was to use a console that wasn't DL (standard PDP-11 serial line
unit) compatable.

RT-11 was designed as both a development enviornment and a realtime
executive for embedded applications. It's pretty flexible and small
so it's good for lots of other stuff. It weakness (there is one) is
that it does not use a scatter-gather map for storage so storage space
can be poorly used due to device fragmentation.

Same here, V4, V5.0, V5.1, V5.4 I may even have 3.xx. Heck I've been
running RT11 since '79 on one thing or another Q-bus.
