I didn't know that RT-11, RSX-11, and RSTS/E didn't support TCP/IP. Or at
least I'd have guessed that RSX-11 would support it. I suppose there is
always 2.11BSD for the PDP-11 for those with a UNIX bent--the AT&T UNIX
license is even free from SCO now. And hey, I almost forgot, there's the
FUZZBALL OS as well. I know it supports IP networking.
