I think that mach did not quite make it until '86 (at least some of the
papers I have from Rashid are dated on 86). You are correct though, I
should have not implied that mach was first implemented on Lunas, I think
it was mach3 the one that Omron and CMU collaborated on.

I believe most 88K systems from motorola were VME based, what you are
refering to is the powerstack machiens, which as far as I know they are
PPC based.
