Oh, ...

OK, so there's at least one thing I have touched, while others still
have to learn about it. ;-) - On the other hand, I've never personally
met a PDP-8 :-(

What operating system are you going to run? - RT-11 should auto-detect
new hardware and load the proper handlers, while RSX will require you to
do a SYSGEN before a new device can be used - certainly not the easiest
part to start with. This may indeed be another catch...

Unix? - That's possible on so many boxes, why do it on a PDP-11 that can
do things other boxes won't? IAS? MUMPS? RSTS/E? SHARE? TSX? - All
possible, but perhaps not easy to find, and some of these will also take
some configuration work before you can use the system.
