In 1985, I had the privilege to be the project engineer on this machine. It had a VAX 11/780 class CPU chip, 25MB MFM drive, and the monitor resolution was 1024x864. We also wrote a windowing system and presentation layer called UIS (User Interface Services). This was our third machine (VAXStation I and VAXStation II were the 2 previous), and we got a VAX into a shoebox. This sold really well, got me a great promotion, and the eye of the CEO. I became one of his goto engineers. Good times.
@jeffmc wow. That is a great story. Very impressive.
@jeffmc That’s awesome.
@jeffmc That’s so cool to have worked on something like that!
@jeffmc 1024x864 in 1985?
Wow! Must be the retina display of those days
