Well, I know a machine where the OS runs (mostly) on the peripheral
channel processors. The main CPU is used for computational tasks only.

I would like to say "that's cool", but I know that the VAX 8650 is a
"11/780 in ECL", so this is hot, not cool. ;-)
Does it still have a PDP-11 as console processor or a MivroVAX II?
I have somthing in my mind the early VAXen had PDP-11/03 or PRO3xx
as FEP and the later MV II FEPs.
