2. Platforms for /usr/princeton.

At this time, three Unix ``platforms" are in wide use at Princeton:

Other platforms include IBM/AIX and HP/AUX, but the three platforms listed above are by far the most prevalent. We recommend that CIT support /usr/princeton for all three of these platforms starting immediately. In coming years, the pattern of computer use will undoubtedly evolve, and it may become appropriate to terminate support of /usr/princeton for some platform, and/or begin supporting /usr/princeton for another platform. Such decisions could be taken based on discussions at meetings of systems administrators.
