 Iterations: An interdisciplinary journal of software history
Honeywell boasted several other operating systems, each supported by its own internal groups.
MIT continued to collaborate in its development until 1977, after which point the burden passed exclusively to Honeywell, which in turn divested its computer operations to the French firm Bull.
While most of the Multicians themselves appear to blame this on half-hearted support by Honeywell and the slow development of suitable hardware, the more interesting question may be whether such an approach could ever have succeeded—even with the backing of IBM itself.

However, it had a powerful impact in the computer field, due to its many novel and valuable ideas; in particular, the Unix system (produced by Bell Labs personnel who had worked on Multics), the GNU project and the much later Linux kernel, are in part descended from Multics.
Multics was developed initially for the GE-645 mainframe, a 36-bit system; later, it was supported on the Honeywell 6180 series machines.
Honeywell bought G.E.'s computer division, released a better hardware base, and continued system development until 1985.

 Multics Virtual Memory - Tutorial and Reflections
Honeywell did not have a dominate market position, its products were a mish-mash of architectures and operating systems, and it lacked a clear vision of how to provide value to customers.
The 6180 CPU had similar PTW and SDW associative memories, along with a general instruction and data cache, and Multics computed encacheability at the segment level as a function of access mode and sharing status.
In the 6180 implementation, we were able to have a single descriptor segment per process, and have the hardware validate all calls and returns, whether within the same ring or across rings.

Honeywell management, prior the merger, was unsatisfied with the proposals prepared by its engineering and planning staff and was very pleased to find in the wedding basket the work on the Shangri-La project that becomes the Honeywell NPL project.
Honeywell decided to re-launch MULTICS with a reimplemented 645 on the base of the H-6000 technology, that was announced late in 1973 as the Honeywell 6180 (delivered in 1974), later reintroduced as Level 68.
Honeywell and Honeywell-Bull, more reluctantly, consider that their large business relies on the park of existing customers, and that even those customers were also IBM customers.

 DPS8   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
After the "merger" when Honeywell bought the GE computer dept, the Phoenix operation became Honeywell Large Information Systems Division, and they brought out a medium-scale integrated version of the GE 600 line as the Honeywell 6000 line.
The Multics machine in this line was the Honeywell 6180, an improvement over the 645 in many areas.
One thing that changed in the 6180 and its descendants was that the GIOC was eliminated.

 Multics Glossary
On the 6180, the pointer registers visible to the Multics instructions are actually fabricated illusions constructed of "address registers" shared with the non-Multics (GCOS) CPU's and segment and ring registers managed by the appending unit, which lock-step mimics every CU operation on the "address registers" to create the software illusion of pointer registers.
The 645 and 6180 instruction instruction that stores an eight-word encoding of the processor state (other than register contents and the state of the EIS unit on the 6180) at the time of an interrupt or fault.
This mechanism was used in the IBM 1050 and 2741 terminals, in various third-party terminals, and in the console typewriter of the 6180.

 Multics History
The Honeywell 6180 was announced in January 1973 at the Boston Museum of Science.
An interesting postscript to this story, though, is that HFSI (formerly Honeywell Federal Systems, Inc., later a quasi independent corporate subsidiary of Bull, and now known as Wang Federal) built a highly secure system on the same DPS6-plus hardware.
Honeywell decided that it was more comfortable making thermostats and sold its computer division to its French partner Bull.

Bell Labs pulled out of the project in 1969; some of the people who had worked on it there went on to create the Unix system.
The U in UNIX is rumoured to stand for "Uniplexed" as opposed to the "Multiplexed" of Multics, further underscoring the designers' rejections of Multics' complexity in favour of a more straightforward and workable approach.

 Multics Glossary -R-
A 6180 CPU register that causes a fault when a process transfers control to a ring at least that high.
The 6180 generation SCUs did not at first support this two-phase operation, and much effort was spent by GCOS-oriented hardware designers to convince us to make Multics use LDAC, the GCOS locking instruction which indicates the locked state by zeroing the word in question in one phase, instead!
Although there were 64 rings (an illusion created by software) on GE 645 Multics, there are 8 rings, supported in hardware, on the Honeywell 6180 in its various models.
