Those boxes needed a really cool computer room. The one I worked on
was directly over a perforated tile in a raised floor area.

Anyway, I'd rather have a Sequent Symmetry or Balance machine running
NetBSD. I spent a lot of time with an S81 with 20 386/20 processors
and also a smaller, later box with 4 486/50 processors.
