All I can add about operating systems related to the original question
is that unless I remember wrong, CTS-300 and CTS-500 were based on
RSTS/E (basically RSTS/E and hardware bundled together as a complete
TRAX-11 was a transaction based system. Mostly targeted at the 11/70,
unless I remember wrong. However, I seem to remember that TRAX-11 was
also somehow tied up with RSX-11M-PLUS, and also the 11/74, but my
memory might be confusing me.
MicroPower PASCAL was a standalone system I seem to remember. You built
the software on something else, like RSX, and then you booted the
created system on a bare machine.
CAPS-11 is something really old. About the same timeframe as DOS-11. It
was obsoleted around 1974 or something, I would suspect. Very short
lifetime of some of the earliest systems for the PDP-11.
