Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

The first commercial time-sharing system, created by dartmouth college and sold by general electric around 1967.

GE's Information Service Divsion (ISD) marketed DTSS which was running on a system called ge-265 (a combination of the front-end processor the datanet-30 and the ge-235).

DTSS was ported (and significantly improved by GE ISD around 1965-1966 on a combination of DN-30 and ge-635). This proprietary system, called Mk-II, later improved by GE and renamed Mk-III, is still working today (1997) as part of the GE service bureau that also includes ibm and unix computers.
