Multics hopefully will be stable enough to use.  The pl1 and runtime on 
multics is very usable.  From what I've seen, Stratus copied most of it 
for their original OS, before slapping a c layer on top of it.

The file system, runtime libraries, and pl1 all looked similar enough 
that  the guys I know there didn't retrain many fingers to program on 
stratus vs. multics.  what I saw looked very similar.
