>But I've never heard of anyone collecting the boxes. Any reason
Probably the same reason no one saved Onyx or old Corvus 68k Unix boxes.
The Fortune was somewhat more interesting in that they made an attempt
to package a 68K unix box as a biz desktop, but this all happened at the
time that AT-class machines took over the world.
A friend of mine who came from Bell Labs had one, and wasn't very happy
with what they had done with it if you actually wanted to use it for
There are a few people who still have systems made the SUN Multibus CPUs
(Callan, Forward Tech, et al)
I picked up some of the Fortune boards as they showed up in the mid 80's
in surplus places, but got rid of them since they really weren't that
interesting, and were pretty much impossible to get docs on.
