I'm slightly dubious about the assertion that the microcoded Orion ran 4.1BSD. My recollection of Heriot-Watt's Orions circa 1990 is that the microcoded Orion ran "OTS 1.485" and the 1/05s ran "OTS 2.148" and both were ports of 4.2BSD. Maybe only early Orions ran 4.1BSD?

I'm pretty sure that the microcoded Orion in the labs in York circa '86-7 ran an OTS that was 4.1-based. OTS 2.x was (to the best of my knowledge) 4.2 with some 4.3 extensions. (and a very broken Green Hills C compiler)! Pete Fenelon 17:43, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

As we at least agree they were both called OTS, I've revised the article accordingly. Letdorf 14:18, 30 January 2007 (UTC).
