While at Bell Labs, I was involved in the beginnings of Multics. Fond
memories! Dave

48-Year-Old Multics Operating System Resurrected

https://tech.slashdot.org/story/17/07/09/0414245/48-year-old-multics-operating-system-resurrected

The last native Multics system was shut down in 2000. After
more than a dozen years in hibernation a simulator for the
Honeywell DPS-8/M CPU was finally realized and, consequently,
Multics found new life... Along with the simulator an
accompanying new release of Multics -- MR12.6 -- has been
created and made available. MR12.6 contains many bug and Y2K
fixes and allows Multics to run in a post-Y2K,
internet-enabled world.
