I suggested this to the OP in a private email, but I'll echo it here.  
A/UX is a lot of fun to play with, and it includes X11 (so you can  
run remote applications), there is a lot of GNU software available  
for it, plus the System 7 programs. I recommend it to anyone with the  
appropriate hardware[0].

I might be able to help someone who wants to acquire a copy, as well.
