I thought those things were cool when they were new, but they run a 68000
chip so you should stay away. AT&T also had a portable version that I'd
really like to find, although that product may have never reached the market.
If you know of a UNIX PC available at my favorite price (including software,
of course), please, please, please let me know. Another interesting machine
would be an IBM RT/PC, which ran AIX on an early RISC chip.
These machines come from the time when many industry pundits thought UNIX
would succeed DOS as the preferred OS for business PCs.

The reason being that it'll meet with a violent
demise once I found out it didn't have an 8088? Or do
I sense a hint of anti-Mac/Moto/AtariST/Amiga bigotry?
Don't hate man :(

Yeah was RISCy business wasn't it? You certainly
would have experienced some AIX if you had been
involved in that debacle LOL LOL. Microshaft was in
the UNIX business at one point (and in fact still is
trying to emasculate every other vendor on the
planet). They long for those days of course, and is
currently working on their very own LINUX DISTRO!
Beggorah. Bill is contempating naming it Micros-UX LOL
LOL LOL. Alright, I plagiarized. Saw the cartoon in
the latest Linux Format.
A very influential group of us are still looking for
various versions of Xenix. ANY platform would be
welcome. The original Micros-UX ;)
