I'm late to the party (go on weekend and everyone comes out of the
woodwork, who knew?) but I have what may be a silly question - does the
S/34 software run on the S/36? I imagine not, but I have a pretty complete
set of software for the /34 so I thought I'd ask.

I also have a 5360, with monitor/keyboard but zero software. At least, I
think I haven't gotten rid of it already.

As with the SGI Onyx2s, if anyone wants a 5360 or a slightly mouse-eaten
but complete S/34 (minus terminals) that comes with a massive library of
~1500 8" disks, four internal disks (62PC), all of the documentation and
internal netlists/diagrammes, etc... I'm an eMail away.
