No, the 11/45 was pretty good, but not great for image
processing and other programs with a lot of data. Once we
got the VAX, I rewrote NASA's Mini-VICAR image processing
program and we were able to run the TeX typesetting program,
among others. Those were not so practical on the 11, mostly
due to the address size.
