TOPS-10




/tops-ten/ DEC's proprietary OS for the fabled PDP-10 machines, long a favourite of hackers but now effectively extinct.

A fountain of hacker folklore.

See also ITS, TOPS-20, TWENEX, VMS, operating system.

TOPS-10 was sometimes called BOTS-10 (from "bottoms-ten") as a comment on the inappropriateness of describing it as the top of anything.
