David Muxworthy was a Principal Investigator in the original MDS(X) Project and  is now Technical Support Manager at the Edinburgh University Computing Services.  His main contribution technically was to polish up the Fortran code and 'productize' it for release 3.1 and 3.2.  He also organized distribution of the source world-wide in the 1970s and 1980s. He comments: “There was substantial progress in the late 1980s with version 3.3,with free format command input, but it has lain uncompleted and has been overtaken by the switch to desktop machines.  I am keen to see the user interface modernized”.
