MIT Releases Multics Source Code

For all you major Open Source geeks, it looks like MIT has released the source code of Multics.

For those of you who have never heard of Multics, it was the antecedent for the original UNIX and is also all other modern operating systems.

This is some pretty scary source code - all assembly language apparently.

There are copyright notices as late as 1987 in some of this code and apparently there were operating Multics systems clear up until 2000!

Far out ...
