Hmmm... I wonder how *that* could have been misplaced? :-)

I used to play with Ultrix back in the VAX-11/7xx days and Ultrix 1.0
through 2.2 (and Ultrix-32m for uVAX). I don't ever recall attempting
to build from sources. I remember copying a config file to the name
of my machine (TUNA, K-PANDA, FALCON, etc.) and going through the
usual gyrations (and some unusual ones since we shipped an Ultrix
device driver for our COMBOARDs).

Even as an OEM _with_ a $35K AT&T source license (still have a photo-
copy of that for an expensive wall hanging!) we didn't have full
Ultrix source, just full SYS III and SYS V source for 11/780 and
11/750 (respectively), AFAIK.

Did DEC ever make "full Ultrix Source" an add-on software product?
