There was also the Sun X Terminal 1 (sun4m, SS4), the JavaStation 
abominations (sun4m, almost an SS4), and various software products.

I always thought the Xkernel was cool -- it was a SunOS 4 kernel + 
miniroot small enough to run entirely in RAM on an SLC/ELC, in order to 
turn it into an X term.
