Stanford's LOTS crashed maybe once a week, which is pretty good for
early 1970s technology with a far larger load than it was made for.
Not to split hairs but the DEC-20 came out in 1976. But
yeah, ours at Chicago were pretty stable, too.
DEC-20 was essentially a marketing term for PDP-10 processors running
the TOPS-20 operating system rather than TOPS-10. The
highest-capacity model PDP-10 was the KL, which came out in 1974.
That's what LOTS was. They were early 1970s technology, integrated
circuits but no large-scale integration.
