A few words about the earliest operating systems

Here are some references about the earliest operating systems:

If we say that running jobs from queue without operators is something which qualifies some software as an operating system, then, according to my knowledge, those three are the first.

If you have some more data about the earliest operating systems, please let me know. Also, if you have some better, different etc. definitions of the minimums for one operating system, please let me know that, too.

Update (2008-12-16): See Robert L. Patrick’s document Operating Systems at Conception.
