32V Unix

Release Date: May 1979
Released By: Bell Labs
Source Code: some source code is in the Unix Archive, browsable in the Unix Tree
Documentation: included in the source code

32V Unix was a port of 7th Edition Unix to the VAX by John Reiser and Tom London of Bell Labs.

Although 32V provided a Version 7 Unix environment on the VAX, it did not use the virtual memory capability of the VAX hardware, and only provided swapping of running processes. Despite this, 32V is essentially the original ancestor of all the commercial Unix derivatives and the BSD varieties.
