The Pro300 series (325/350/380) is a PDP-11 compatible microcomputer released by DEC in 1983 which was supported until the early 1990's and still has its loyal users today. Though it was superior in many ways to the contemporary IBM PC's, it ran a watered-down version of RSX-11M-Plus called P/OS and was marketed poorly. Many were (and are?) used as front-ends for VAXstation systems. I still use it occasionally to access the internet via a 19,200 bps connection to a Unix shell account, where I can use elm, pine, tin, lynx, etc. One can also use Fuzzball for native internet capability on the Pro. A Pro can also run RT-11, a fast and efficient realtime operating system
