Setun was the first
Setun was the first (and only) ternary computer on the World. It was built at 1958. in Kazan (SSSR, USSR on English) by Nikolay Brusentsov, Soviet war hero. Setun used ternary logic (digits were -1, 0, 1). At 1960. there was enough programs for Setun that it can be tested. There were built 50 of them. I hope I helped somebody. Salut komrads!

I find the Setun extremely interesting, and hope somebody would expand the information available. It would be nice to know the memory organization, word size, instruction set, etc. --Pezezin 00:21, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
- There do seem to be a large number of sources that at least mention the computer: . The first source on that list (Computing in Russia) has four pages of coverage on Setun, which are viewable in the Google Books preview. Iknowyourider (t c) 15:12, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Ternary bits == ternary binary digits?
The article defines "trits" with the term "ternary bits" which translates to the nonsensical "ternary binary digits". Would it be better to change "ternary bits" to "ternary digits"?
