The Seventh Edition licensing procedures are, I suppose, still in effect,
though I doubt that tapes are available from AT&T. At any rate, whatever
restrictions the license imposes still exist. These restrictions were and
are reasonable for places that just want to run the system, but dont allow
many of the things that Minix was written for, like study of the source in
classes, or by individuals not in a university or company.

Ive always thought that Minix was a fine idea, and competently done.

As for the size of v7, wc -l /usr/sys/*/*.[chs] is 19271.

Overall, the philosophy is to attack the availability problem from two
complementary directions: to reduce the number of software errors through
rigorous testing of running systems, and to reduce the effect of the
remaining errors by providing for recovery from them. An interesting footnote
to this design is that now a system failure can usually be considered to be
the result of two program errors: the first, in the program that started the
problem; the second, in the recovery routine that could not protect the
system. -- A. L. Scherr, "Functional Structure of IBM Virtual Storage
