Bah! *LUXORY* I tell you. You should be so lucky to have such a fast
processor available to you. See http://vaxine.bitcon.no/ which runs on a
MicroVAX II (a sub-MIP machine). Or when we get NetBSD/vax to support the
MicroVAX I... then we'll show you the meaning of a resource challenged
platform! It can have up to 4Megs of RAM and the CPU (implemented as two
separate quad sized Q-bus boards) zips along at a blindingly fast 300,000
instructions per second.
