I'll pipe up here and confess I never professionally worked with RT-11, or any other DEC OS, for that matter, except for a very, very short 2-month stint with RSTS/E. And all I really was doing was making some small adjustments to DIBOL-coded accounting software for a customer. Then my world shifted, and I was sucked into the world of networking PC's (Novell) where I spent the better part of my career.
Anyway, I *am* using RT-11 to image my collection of floppies (some of which probably belong on Tim Shoppa's site; TOPS-20 related stuff, looks like). Other than that, I'm basically a complete DEC newbie, and am just starting to dip into MACRO-11 on RT-11. Part of a pickup included a college textbook focused entirely on RT-11 MACRO-11, so I'm having some fun! :-)
As for Ethan's interest in a Z-machine, I'll second that! But I don't even know where to start!
PS. Thanks, again, to all that assisted the reviving of my PDP-11/03!
