DEC PDP-7: Add to the historical notes that this was the first system to ever run AT&T UNIX. Systems 1 through 4 ran on the PDP-7.
Another thing to stick in the historical notes, is that it was on the PDP-7 that what was probably the world's first emulator appeared: an emulator for the PDP-8 ran on the -7. :)
