Description

After the attendees introduced themselves and gave a brief summary of their backgrounds, the discussion focused on the technological foundations for the timesharing and remote processing services industry. The participants described the initial developments which made timesharing a practical operating system approach. They reviewed the technological breakthroughs in hardware and software that made timesharing and remote processing services economically viable approaches. They covered the differences among the various developments. Primary focus was on the development at UC Berkeley with SDS which led to the formation of Tymshare and Comshare and the work at the IBM Cambridge Scientific Center on CP-40 and then CP-67 which led to the formation of National CSS and IDC.
