Well, KL-10 was the "last" PDP-10 implementation. In between you have the
KI-10 and KS-10. (Well, okay, the KS came after the KL, but what the

PDP-11 comes in different tastes. The 11/20 and decsndants at the KA-11
while the 11/45 and descendants are the KB-11. The 11/60 I think was the
KD-11 while the 11/44 was the KE-11. All with reservations for my faulty
memory. This can easily be checked with the field-guide.txt...
