What's the difference between CISC and PA-RISC HP3000 systems (software)

2.1.2. What's the difference between CISC and PA-RISC systems (software)


HP3000 systems prior to "Spectrum" are now commonly referred to as the "Classic" systems, the 9xx series were initially called "Spectrum" systems (although currently "XL" or more recently "iX" is more commonly used). MPE/XL continued until the beginning of the integration of POSIX support into the operating system, which was then abruptly renamed to MPE/iX as of Release 4.0 (?) although the only supported (push) release with realistic POSIX features will be the MPE/iX 5.0 release.
