False information alert!

    ... Symbolics using CHAOS (TCP derivative) ...

Chaos is not a TCP derivative. Chaos was in active service at MIT
around 1978 or so, which I think was before TCP became operational.
Chaos is more a derivation of (Xerox) PUP and Arpanet NCP, with a bunch
of things "fixed." In some ways it is more powerful than TCP/IP, and in
some ways less. It is certainly not a derivative of TCP, even though
Chaos's designers worked in the same building as some of the major
contributors to the TCP design.
