Actually there were several different Foonly machines, F1 through F5. All were
PDP10 clones; some had extensions (the F5 had a bit-reversal operation to
speed FFTs, for instance). I believe that the F1 was, for a time, the
fastest PDP10-type
machine around. Dave Poole was the chief designer of these machines.

Additional totally irrelevant remark: Brian Silverman has written a PDP1
in Java that is capable of running the original spacewar program in a web

What this has to do with a LispOS is beyond me.
