not what you were referring to, but I'm primarily an Intel guy. Some
peeps feel the early IBM-ish stuff isn't vintage, but I poopoo all
that rot at every oppurtunity. I like Sun :). Even started a group
for Sun and SGI stuff, but it's dead as a doornail presently LOL LOL.
There was/is an HP-Apollo unit on ebay, but I'll hold off on
something like that until I find one locally.

Linux to run on an R10000 based Indigo 2. Not likely in my lifetime,
but we'll see...
