From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  TYMCOM-X
  
      Tymshare's operating system which ran
     for many years on Tymshare's PDP-10s.  It was a descendent
     of TOPS-10 but had many of the important features of
     TOPS-20 such as real paging and controllable/spawnable
     processes.  TYMCOM-X, one of the best kept secrets in the
     PDP-10 folklore, was written by Bill Weiher, Vance Socci
     , Allen Ginzburg, Karen Kolling, Art
     Atkinson, Gary Morgenthaler (founder of the company that
     produced IDRIS), Todd Corenson and Murray Bowles.  Some
     copies still run today.  Most TYMNET development was done
     under TYMCOM-X and Tymshare sold a TYMCOM-X system to TRW to
     use in their credit reporting network, which was based on a
     purchased copy of TYMNET circa 1979.
