also i have heard (or read - i dunno that was a while ago) the name
LANCE in reference to VME chassis SBC's when I did military work for the
US. I think they were only using VxWorks _on_those_cards_ (they used
hpux for the SBCs that users interacted with). I will check with some
contacts i have and see if they are still using them.
