It's fun, if you have a proper sbus SPARC in which to run it.  It's
certainly a lot faster than WABI.

I wouldn't count on anyone parting with cash for it, as the x86 CPU on
there is a low-end 486-class part, IIRC.  Even an emulated VM on modern
hardware would be faster.  However, if you have a supported host system,
it's a fun device, so I wouldn't toss it out.
