      Second reply to my own message. :)

      This exhibit could also include our PC Jr., maybe some of Mark's OS/2 stuff, etc.

      >>> Then every unix machine, regardless of size, would be a mini ... an interesting machine, but is it the right fit for this exhibit?

      I vote "no" ... this particular exhibit should be about "traditional" minicomputers....

      I think the 860 is ideal for our upcoming "Artifact of the Month" exhibit, or for some future exhibit that focuses on office apps.

      Actually the latter isn't a bad idea. Most of our visitors will know MS Office. We can show them the 860, Visicalc, Lotus 1-2-3, AppleWorks, etc. ... what other software/hardware combinations should be considered the most historic / most relevant of this exhibit?
