2Multics License
4Historical Background
6This edition of the Multics software materials and documentation is
7provided and donated to Massachusetts Institute of Technology by Group
8BULL including BULL HN Information Systems Inc. as a contribution to
9computer science knowledge. This donation is made also to give evidence
10of the common contributions of Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
11Bell Laboratories, General Electric, Honeywell Information Systems
12Inc., Honeywell BULL Inc., Groupe BULL and BULL HN Information Systems
13Inc. to the development of this operating system. Multics development
14was initiated by Massachusetts Institute of Technology Project MAC
15(1963-1970), renamed the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science and
16Artificial Intelligence in the mid 1970s, under the leadership of
17Professor Fernando Jose Corbato. Users consider that Multics provided the
18best software architecture for managing computer hardware properly and
19for executing programs. Many subsequent operating systems incorporated
20Multics principles. Multics was distributed in 1975 to 2000 by Group
21Bull in Europe , and in the U.S. by Bull HN Information Systems Inc., as
22successor in interest by change in name only to Honeywell Bull Inc. and
23Honeywell Information Systems Inc. .
