Corvus, as in the same company who built the Corvus "Concept"?


(Ignore the assertion in that auction that the Concept was the "original
GUI workstation of the 80's" - the PERQ beat it by 2 years. :-)

I would kill to get my hands on that machine, but I can't spend the money 
right now. :-/  I know that Bill von Hagen would love to snag a Corvus 
Concept, too... it just looks like a slick machine, and it's from the era 
that I love most, back when the "workstation" market was exploding and all 
sorts of neat stuff (and very interesting machines) were busting out all 
over the place... sigh.
