I may be mixing a couple of threads, but I recall something akin to a
'Q-System' (or maybe Quantum) running a netbsd variant that they
called QDos(not the precursor of MS/PC-DOS). There was also an online
service for these, and (this is the good part) that service became
TimeWarner ... or something.
But the machine was a 68000 or 68010 SBC .. quite cheap for those
days, may have been bought by either Atari or Commodore...
