http://bhtooefr.ath.cx/files/sun1/

I had been looking for info (when I get into a hobby, I start looking at everything that extends from that hobby, and that led me to the Sun-1 - I'll probably never own one, but hey,) and it's kinda scattered, and I lost a link to some info before, so I decided... what the hell, I'll try to gather everything I can find in one place.

There's a few files that I know the location of that aren't in there yet, simply because the server that they're on went down as I was downloading them.

Very nice! There's an excellent Sun3 archive out there ( http://www.sun3arc.org ), but as you mentioned, not much for the earlier Suns.

A Sun 3/80 running 4.1.1_U1 was my first real Unix experience (still have it in the closet), so I do have a soft spot for the old BSD-based SunOS machines.

Well, the Sun-1s didn't even run BSD - they ran UniSoft V7 Unix. :)

I've seen it referred to as "SunOS 0.9" or "SunOS 0.7," although I haven't seen any proof that it was called that before SunOS 1.0 came out for the Sun-2 (and Sun-1/100U and 150U, which were Sun-1s with Sun-2 CPU cards.)

Yeah, I just realized that looking at the Wikipedia article on SunOS; needed to upgrade the CPU board for BSD :) Still cool though!

I remember gnashing my teeth when my University went to Solaris 2.6 :evil: . Once I started admining my own machines I grew to like some of the SysVr4 stuff, funny how that happens, but at the time I was convinced they'd made a deal with the devil, and resented that some of the tricks I'd picked up didn't work any more. About that time they also took out the terminal lab - you hardly ever had to wait, and there were predominantly "serious" types in there.

Still have several SunOS 3/4 machines (Sun-3 and Sun-4 variants). Be nice if I could find some archives of freeware for them, but it seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.

I was working part time at a company that Sold SUN, AXIL and PCs during the time of the switch over from BSDish SunOS4 to SystemV-ish Solaris... My boss at the time had exactly the same reaction as you.

I don't think I was as invested ... I was running Linux and Ultrix (on VAXstations) at home and had access to IRIX and OSF/1 (pre-Tru64 DEC UNIX) ..
