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.
