> Last, what is the aviion?

Data General Aviion (first of the wave of new unix machines to be made by
somebody other than sun/hp/ibm/sgi, first non aos/vs machine for DG. Even
Digital got on the unix bandwagon after that.

This question brings a tear to me eyes. I grew up with DG (my brother (God
rest his soul) wrote their O/S's for them). I miss them. I guess if people
on a rescue list have to ask what the Aviion is, then DG must really be gone.

btw.. I finally have the room and power for some DG hardware. I would love a
Nova, Eclipse or even an MV. An Aviion would be cool too, but that boxen
signalled the death of an era. If anyone finds themselves scratching their heads
and wondering *what the fug is this*, pass the boxen on to me, I'll give them a
good home.
