Tru64 featured AdvFS, which was awesome for the time (pre-ZFS).

seems this is the article you really wanted to link to...

Surprisingly Tru64 only reached end-of-life in December of 2012, with the last release happening in 2010. Depressingly, some of the modern software I write at work is required to be compatible with Tru64 5.0 as some of our customers are still running that OS.


The article that's linked to is about a Soviet Unix clone. It's pretty cool, too.


The MicroVAX II was alleged to have this etched into some revs, in Cyrillic: "MicroVAX: when you care enough to steal the very best"


This link isn't for a post on Tru64 but rather:

"Unix OS archaeology – Soviet UNIX clone DEMOS pt.2"

Also interesting but perhaps correct the URL in the title?
