I thought it was CDC who had the slashed Ohs or perhaps it was
Burroughs. In the three universities in Melbourne in the early 70s we
had a DECsystem-10 (La Trobe), Burroughs 7800 (Monash) and a CDC-6000
(Melbourne) and I remember thinking that we'd got the best deal with
the DECsystem-10 although I later learnt that the other two systems
were cool in their own distinct ways.
