My very own DEC PDP-11 and a quick view of a DEC System 20
Finally it’s here, my eagerly awaited PDP-11 from Digital Equipment Corporation.
My very own DEC PDP-11/23
A very nice guy named Pontus had one left over which he was willing to give away if I came to pick it up. Said and done, now I’m a proud owner of a DEC PDP-11/23 from 1979. Today I powered up my PDP-11 for the first time with XXDP, next I’m going to see if I can get CP/M running on it. In the end I hope for some kind of Unix, but one step at the time. Hopefully my books on PDP-11 that I ordered on Amazon will arrive soon.
DEC System 20 @ Update, University of Uppsala
This very nice guy who gave me the PDP-11 is also a member of the computer club Update at University of Uppsala and invited us to a guided tour of their collection of old computers. It was love at first sight when I saw their DEC System 20 lined up in the corridor and I couldn’t resist taking some photos to bring with me home.
Check out my gallery for more pictures of there two beautiful computers.
