For me there are a few:
Any 386 or 486 box that was DESIGNED for UNIX. Besides the Suns, there
must have been others.
An NCR Pentium multiprocessor, microchannel UNIX machine. Worked for
someone (1995) that had several. Ran SySVR4. The particular one I used
had 4 P90's complete with the floating point bug. I'd love to have one
maxed out in processors and memory. No it was not a PC, it would not run
DOS or Windows, just real live UNIX.
An 8 processor PII 200 machine made by the people who used to make Sun
clones (Axil?).If I could get anything decent to run on it, BSD, Linux,
SolarisX86, I'd love it.
But both of them are long gone, if you ever see one let me know.
Unfortunately I live in a country where Sun killed DEC around 1993,
Linux killed BSD around 1999 and SGI's never really caught on. :-(

Carp are bottom feeders, koi are too, and not surprisingly are ferrets.
