I was reading about historical computers today (much more fun than
doing homework), and I again came across some pages on Multics. It
seems that Canada shut down the world's last running Multics system
back in 2000. There are no working simulators (that I found), and the
software itself isn't online. Is Multics pretty much MIA now, except
for some old machines locked in a DoD storage facility or something?
