 * [[Unix|Move to Unix]] 1992 to 1994 --- The switch from VMS to Unix, and the start of the reviews.

The Starlink Chronicle is rather long so it is divided into sections.

  • Site openings lists when each Starlink node was opened.

  • The dates when each node switched from VAX/VMS to Unix.

  • The milestones of the Starlink Project.

The detailed chronicle is broken into groups, each of a few years.

  • Conception 1977 to 1979

  • Birth 1980 to 1982 --- VAX 11/780s and 11/750s, Interim environment, ASPIC

  • The Dark Age 1983 to 1985 --- funding cuts and no software environment decided, HDS developed

  • Renaissance 1986 to 1988 --- ADAM selected and first application packages, switch to microVAXes

  • Software Growth 1989 to 1991 --- Formation of the ADAM Support Group, switch to 3400s, first signs of Unix and reviews

  • Move to Unix 1992 to 1994 --- The switch from VMS to Unix, and the start of the reviews.
