PDP-10 Model KL-10 1975 Digital Equipment Corporation, United States First introduced in 1966, the PDP-10 evolved into five basic designs over the next eighteen years. Many university computer facilities and other research agencies employed PDP-10 mainframes as timesharing computers capable of simultaneously supporting multiple users. Based on DEC's revolutionary PDP-6, the PDP-10 was used for much of the early work on artificial intelligence. The PDP-10 was also beloved by the early "hacker" community. During this era, most hackers were irreverent, but not malicious, programming experts who attempted to use computers in new and clever ways.
