    That's more or less explains it all and I partly agree with it.
    Whatever they choose to upgrade it to, I just hope they don't connect systems to internet.

    OS used is probably EDX or MTM. Internet for all practical purposes didn't exist when the Series 1 was in wide use.

    Just might be one of the securest systems on the planet presently. BTW- for real-time and I mean in "real time" not time sliced, the Series 1 was tops for what it could monitor.
