Yes, pretty sure the PDP-8 was an octal-based machine; the PDP-11 I got to use in college was as well, IIRC, as were Data General machines (Nova, Eclipse?).

Yes, the Data General minis were octal-based.

Interesting trivia, WordPerfect was originally developed and marketed for a Data General Nova 4.

I have a complete Nova 4 CPU and rack in my garage that I hope to restore to working condition someday.

Ceci n'est pas une signature.
