No, at least the PDP-10 had 36 bits per word. And you can download an
emulator and disk images for the TOPS-20 operating system via . I have adapted its ethernet connectivity
on a NetBSD host - and yes, Internet connections work! (Only IPv4
though; IPv6 is a  bit too new). If you ever used Kermit on Unix or
MSWindows, and wondered where its command completion and help facility
comes from, look no further than TOPS-20!
