netbsd's dmesg says
mainbus0 (root): micro COMPstation 5
when i boot the machine, it says
micro COMPstation 5, No Keyboard
and solaris's "dmesg" says
root nexus = micro COMPstation 5
so microsparcII would not have been my guess. it's made by tatung,
fwtw. it still doesn't seem that much to ask, however, that there be
a much easier way to "divine" this information.
