I have a DECstation 5000/150 (That's R4000 at 50MHz). Still TC, though. I'd
be glad to test kernels, but at present, I cannot do any hacking. I am a
Physics major and this is taking up approx. 120% of my time. Add my work
and the fact that I live in a rented apt by myself... you get the point.
And I haven't even mentioned the time I must spend with my girlfriend if I
want to keep her ;-)

Well, since the prices of these haven't dropped by too much yet, this is
not yet an attractive system for people who want a cheap Alpha. But this
will change in time.

When was the last time you saw a room of people cheer a group
of computer science theorists for their significant practical
contribution to advancing human knowledge?
