The irony is that the machines that always failed in the marketplace
are the ones that are collectible pieces of history now!

It would be nice to have a workstation running NeWS for my little
museum, but I bet that its hard to find a Sun distribution or an SGI
distribution of NeWS at this point.  (I tried my coding on an SGI.)

A NeXT box is much easier to come by -- I see them regularly on ebay.
