Just a pedantic point, Ken and Dennis used KSR-33 to invent Unix,
along with some model 37's and a lot of glass ttys shortly after.
Here's a link to an image of the first pdp-11 model 20 they shared
with the patent department at Murray Hill. I don't know why they used
just newlines as line deliminters, but I don't think it wasn't because
of the output devices.
