No. With 1.6 you need to use the TCWSCONS kernel, with 2.0 or -current
it should work with wscons (framebuffer console) just fine. If you have
a PMAGB-B (IIRC build into -500 models) you will get X11 too. I am sure
here as I run X11 on a -600 with PMAGB-B.

And DEC UNIX is a quite nice, very BSDish Unix.
