I saved this from the bottom of the template, as I'm not sure it is needed in this template?

Alternative layout[edit]

An alternate layout may be:

  • vertical
  • not include all bit widths - e.g. 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128 (and leave for the existing bottom nav template that includes them all)
  • non-aligned (as suggested by another editor, and as previously)

anyone? Widefox (talk) 18:15, 24 August 2012 (UTC)[reply]

30-bit category[edit]

In this template there is no 30-bit category, instead it points to the article about the Univac 490. However there were a number of different 30-bit machines from Univac and not all of them were ISA compatabile.

For example the Univac 1104 (cut down from 36-bit 1103) and the Univac 1050 which was a variable word machine.

Also there was the RCA 4100 series of machines.

Then there would need to be a "30-bit" or "30-bit computing" page, covering the 30-bit computers, to which to which "30" in the template would link. There is currently, as far as I know, no candidate for a page to which "30" could link. Guy Harris (talk) 07:57, 25 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I've create a draft page in last couple days for this, need to add references as of yet, but once I have I'll submit it for review.
