I never saw any DEC installtion :-(

Working exclusively on Honeywell for over 30 years I was a bit biased.

Saw the Amstelveen (NL) computer centre of KLM. It had over 400 hard
disk drives!

I also saw Honeywell upgrading a L66 machine so it would run faster. The
engineer pulled-out a PCB and took it away. That 'upgrade' cost over 1
million NLG (Dutch guilders).

With best regards,
