I have a long-standing desire to pick up a circa-1991 AT&T 6386 SX/EL WGS
and run AT&T's version of SysV for 386 on it.

(not the "regular" 6386, because it uses a nonstandard keyboard / plug)

Why?  Because the tower version of the 6386 was one of the first "real
UNIX" systems I ever saw in person, when I toured the local electric co-op
in grade school (they had that doing weather maps and such; their VAX ran
all the important things).
