Then every unix machine, regardless of size, would be a mini.
Wasn't there a multi-post argument last week about what a mini is or isn't? And I believe the end result was that no one could agree on what a mini is, other than "larger than a micro, but smaller than a mainframe".
Admittedly, having never seen the machine in question, I'm not going to argue for or against it, but, if it's got it's own screen and keyboard to provide a GUI, is it really a multi-user machine (unless it's providing a GUI via multiple serial terminals, in which case, that *is* unique (and interesting))??
Regardless, it sounds like an interesting machine, but is it the right fit for this exhibit?
