Rocky Mountain BASIC is what evolved from the 9830, 9835, 9845, etc.  It 
ran on the 9000/200 and 9000/300 non-HP-UX systems.  On the 9000 HP-UX 
systems it was called "BASIC/UX".  Some versions that ran on the PC or 
inside instruments were called "Instrument BASIC".

Technical BASIC is what evolved from the 83/85/9905, 86/87, 75, etc.  It 
was first called Technical BASIC on the 9807A Integral, but later was 
available for HP-UX on other 9000 systems.

There were enough differences between the two that many customers 
complained about the lack of Rocky Mountain BASIC for the Integral.
