Removed this sentence:
SINTRAN was specifically made to run FORTRAN programs.
Simply because it is not correct. -- Egil 18:50, 9 September 2005 (UTC)
Actually, it is. The original SINTRAN was actually no more than a compiler with an interactive shell - it was a portmanteau of "SINTEF" and "FORTRAN".
SINTRAN III, however, was a completely general-purpose, real-time OS. -- toresbe 11:03, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
- ...suddenly, I become less confident. Do either of us have any sources? :)
As far as I know, Sintran II was only a real time system, made for the Nord-1 and early Nord-10s. As the name itself tells us, Nord TSS was the time-sharing system for those models. Sintran III was based on both TSS and Sintran II.
