  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    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}
