Where there any computers that used a "rectangular sense" core RAM?
Whirlwind core is diagonal. This page describes the differences/evolution
of the sense line.
Were rectangular core planes used in any commercial/government computer
that saw production activity, presumably the period 1953-1959? Whirlwind
is known for diagonal sense planes, but was there a brief period when the
core was "rectangular sense" I know core was added to Whirlwind as an
upgrade, it did not launch into production with core. (right?)
