  Shangri-La and the Paris 645
GE decided that such a plan was too expensive and sold its business to Honeywell.
So a 645 with firehose drum, disk, tapes and a card puch was installed late in 3Q 1971 in Billerica, MA, essentially for the development of a cross compiler and a simulation environment and for compiler development.
The Paris 645 was able to sustain around 25 terminals doing data entry, mail, and software editing and 1 heavy process such as compiling or running the simulator.

  GE-600 series
GE built a machine called the M236 for the task, and as a result of the 36-bit needs, it ended up acting a lot like the 7094.
However by the early 1960s GE was the largest user of IBM mainframes, and purchasing their own machines seemed like an excellent way to lower the costs of their computing department.
GE then decided to sell their entire computer division to Honeywell in 1970, who renamed the now working GE-655 as entire line as the Honeywell 6000 series.

After the buyout of GE's computer division by Honeywell, the name was changed to General Comprehensive Operating System (GCOS).
GE Information Service Divsion developed a large special multi-computer system that was not publicised because they did not wish time sharing customers to challenge their bills.
Although GE ISD was marketing DTSS - the first commercial time sharing system - GE Computer Division had no license from Dartmouth and GE-ISD to market it to external customers, so they designed a time-sharing system to sell as a standard part of GECOS-III, which replaced GECOS-II in 1967.

Perhaps GE did not invest enough in U.S.A. to build a marketing force able to sell the systems it made and would have benefit to learn more from its European counterpart.
The lack of commitment to the computer market by GE was certainly one of the cause of its eventual failure.

 The Class Ge 4/4 III Locomotives
The technical equipment of this latest generation of narrow gauge locomotives is comparable to the class Re 460 that is used by the SBB, the Swiss Federal Railways.
The Ge 4/4 # 8001–8004 of the MOB are also used for adverstising purposes.
With the class Ge 4/4 III, the RhB used new marketing concepts: Following the example of the SBB (and the German DB AG), most of these engines are used as “advertising locomotives” now.

One "improvement" GE made was to allow any number of levels of indirection, whereas Organick says that the 7094 stopped after two memory references.
The segmentation and paging hardware was very similar to the 645 implementation (we missed a major opportunity to enlarge segments!), but the ring hardware was all new.
In the 645 implementation, rings were implemented by keeping different descriptor segments for each ring, faulting (trapping) on every ring crossing, and switching descriptor segments.

 Douglas W. Jones's collection of punched cards for computer programs
This card, probably designed in October 1965 (judging by the notation "10-65" printed on the left edge), was printed for use with the GE 600 series computers at Bell Labs.
These included a GE 635 at the Whippany lab and two GE 645 systems at Murray Hill, one in the computer center, and one used for the Multics project, a joint venture between Bell Labs, MIT and GE.
This card is formatted for the GE 600 assembly language, and it has the nice feature that columns 50 to 72 are printed with complete documentation of the GE 600 6-bit BCD character set, as it was punched on cards.

 Fernando J Corbató
Initially the basic system chosen was the newly marketed GE 635.This computer was similar to the IBM 7094's which Project MAC and Bell-Labs already had experience with, both machines had the same 36-bit word, accumulator, quotient register, index registers.
Professor Corbató stated in his report "A Managerial View of the Multics System Development" that PL/1 was chosen "partly because of the richness of its constructs and partly because of the enthusiasm of those planning to implement the compiler" (see http://www.multicians.org/managerial.html), however there were problems to be overcome.
Due to the significant changes in hardware (The GE 635 became the GE 645) which were needed to implement some of the advanced features which Multics would incorporate there were no assemblers or compilers for the machine available.

 Interview with A.G. Fraser
This is significant, for the consequence of this event had a great impact on the computing mentality at Bell and subsequently influenced the development of UNIX.
Multics had been a new time sharing system, devised in conjunction with GE and MIT, to function as the next generation computer service.
Despite the large investment in Multics, including the purchase of a new GE-645 to run it, the inability of Multics to meet the expectations of customers resulted in Bell Labs pulling out of the project.

 History of UNIX - Part I
The collaborative project by GE, MIT and ATandT to create a computer operating system that would be called Multics (1965-68) was to "show that general-purpose, multiuser, timesharing systems were viable." (See Douglas Comer, "Pervasive Unix: Cause for Celebration," Unix Review, October, 1985, pg.
When the decision to pull out of the Multics project was made by ATandT, Vyssotsky explains there was an operating system that he called a "precursor of Multics" running on their GE 645 computer.
However, when Bell Labs pulled out of the Multics project they took the Multics precursor off their GE 645 computer and put up GECOS, a much less state of the art operating system.

 Interview with Sam Morgan
As an operating system that would be a major advance over the then existing mostly batch oriented operating systems and this was to run on GE 645 computers.
The Indian Hill people were a group that decided quite early on that they were not going to wait for research and for the GE 645 and for MULTICS they had to have something sooner, and they wanted something that was supported by a vendor which TSS was.
Morgan: It was a very nice environment for a small number of users, but the Labs just could not afford and users generally could not afford the cost of the GE 645 for the small number of users that it was supporting.

 An Expanded Tape Listing Program for the GE 635/645 Computer.
Abstract : A description of an Expanded Tape Listing Program for use on the GE 635/645 Computer running under control of the Comprehensive Operating Supervisor is presented.
The GE 635/645 Console Typewriter is utilized in the interactive mode so that the computer operator has control of the running program and may effect continuation of tape reporting, error recovery or termination of the program.
Finally, the program has the inherent capacity to recognize certain situations that are frequently encountered, such as successful tape reads, parity errors, or blank tape encounters.

 GCOS
Although GE ISD was marketing DTSS - the first commercial time sharing system - GE Computer Division had no license from Dartmouth and GE-ISD to market it to external customers, so they designed a time-sharing system to sell as a standard part of GECOS-III, which replaced GECOS-II in 1967.
GECOS TSS was more general purpose than DTSS, it was more a programmer's tool (program editing, e-mail on a single system) than a BASIC TSS.
Other OS groups at Honeywell began referring to it as "God's Chosen Operating System", allegedly in reaction to the GCOS crowd's uninformed and snotty attitude about the superiority of their product.

 Multics Site History: RADC
As the new site engineering leader, I came from The GE Corporate Data center in Schenectady (TIPO), the first priority was to get the machine (mean time between failure and mean time to repair)MTBF and MTTR number fixed.
The RADC customer was livid since they only had this one machine (a 635 was replaced with the 645) and they had real work to get done.
At that point, the 645 was pretty new and ran TSS-645 while waiting for Multics to be delivered.
