Possibly, but they're awfully expensive to ship.  They're roughly the
CPU speed of an SGI Octane, and are well-designed systems.  The memory
bandwidth isn't the greatest, but they're reasonably small.

They'll run HP-UX 10.20, 11, and probably 11i.  Linux supposedly runs on
them (though I haven't tried that particular model), and OpenBSD claims
to run them in 32-bit mode.

One thing about them, though.  They're a lot heavier than they look.
