No, the OpenStep for Mach 4.2 User disk is bootable on the subset of
Sun M that will run NS/OS. They dropped HPPA by then but Sun hadn't
gotten all excited by Java yet so OpenStep was it's magic bullet.

Compared to more modern OS's 4.1.4 or OpenStep are lean, mean & fast :D

I'm puttering with an install of 4.1.4 right now (7,E,1 Sun? Really?)
and then I should try to track down if anyone has that patch cluster
available since I know Oracle won't :eek:
